Discussing modern trends in physics at conference in Baku

News, 15 December 2021

VII International Conference “Modern Trends in Physics” (MTP-2021) is being held on 15 – 17 December. It is a platform for discussions on a wide range of topics linked to various domains of physics at all levels, thus influencing tomorrow’s outlook to better education and research. The Conference has gathered scientists from 17 countries in a hybrid format.

On behalf of the international team of the Joint Institute, JINR Director Grigory Trubnikov and JINR Vice-Director Sergey Dmitriev welcomed participants of the event. The JINR leaders noted a long-standing and actively enhancing cooperation between the Institute and Azerbaijan.

“Many specialists from Azerbaijan have been educated and trained in Dubna,” Grigory Trubnikov said. “Nowadays, about 20 bright scientists from this country work at the Institute.” JINR and Azerbaijani colleagues cooperate in many areas of research and projects of the Institute, including the NICA collider, the Superheavy Element Factory, the IBR-2 reactor. “A new field for the interaction of JINR with Azerbaijani colleagues is the creation of the International Centre for Innovation Research in Nuclear Technologies in Dubna,” the JINR Director noted stressing the importance of partnership between scientists of Azerbaijan and JINR.

Staff members of the Joint Institute will make a number of reports within the programme of the event. Thus, on 16 December, VBLHEP JINR Scientific Secretary Alexander Cheplakov will make an overview report on the results of the ATLAS experiment at the LHC. JINR scientific results will be also presented in a report dedicated to the associated production of a Higgs boson and a single top quark using p-p collisions. Moreover, BLTP employees as members of an international team will report on the prompt photons production in proton-proton collision at high energies.

The Joint Institute has become one of the organizers of the event together with Baku State University and the Ministry of Education of the Republic of Azerbaijan in collaboration with the STAR-NET Regional Network for Education and Training in Nuclear Technology, Szeged University (Hungary) and Sapienza University of Rome (Italy).

The MTP Conference has been held since 2009 and aims to find innovative areas in physics, exchange experience with international experts, encourage young researchers to pursue scientific careers, and discuss important theoretical and practical research achievements on a global scale. The MTP-2021 highlights the latest research innovations and applications within the fields of theoretical and high energy physics, condensed matter physics, materials science and engineering, biophysics, space sciences and astrophysics.

Articles selected and reviewed by the Programme Committee will be published in “Modern Trends in Physics” Conference Proceedings that is included in Web of Science.
