1-st Announcement

Dear Colleagues,

In 1999, there comes a year before an end of the XXth Century, when modern Cosmology and Relativistic Astrophysics appeared, evolved and formed. A natural step in their development is CosmoParticle physics, studying fundamental relationship between micro- and macro- worlds. Papers by Ya.B. Zeldovich, A.D. Sakharov, I.M. Khalatnikov, E.M. Lifshits and many other Russian scientists have played a significant role in the progress of these sciences. Cosmology, particle physics, relativistic astrophysics and cosmoparticle physics are widely discussed at the now being traditional International Conferences on CosmoParticle Physics "Cosmion-94", "Cosmion-96" and "Cosmion-97" held in Moscow. The 4th International Conference "Cosmology. Relativistic Astrophysics. CosmoParticle Physics" (Cosmion-99) in the Honor of 80th Birthday of Isaak M. Khalatnikov is to be held in Moscow during October 17-24, 1999 (the dates may be slightly corrected). This meeting will discuss the present stage of studies in Cosmology, Relativistic Astrophysics and CosmoParticle Physics in a number of Scientific Meetings and Workshops covering various aspects of this actively developing scientific area. It is also assumed that recent results of Prof. I.M. Khalatnikov and his scientific school will find a significant place in the Conference programme, that seems to be the best form of a scientist's birthday celebration.

The main topics of the 4 International Conference "Cosmology.Relativistic Astrophysics. CosmoParticle Physics" (Cosmion-99) include fundamental relationship between macro- and micro-worlds, quantum gravity and quantum cosmology, relativistic astrophysics, physics of inflation and the early Universe, baryogenesis, cosmological nucleosynthesis, new particles and symmetries in the Universe, the physics of dark matter and a cosmological term, large scale structure of the Universe and the cosmic background radiation, cosmoarcheology and cosmochronology, high energy physics and astrophysics, exotic and compact objects, etc. It is the tradition of the Cosmion conferences to consider these topics in their fundamental unity, following the basic strategy of CosmoParticle physics to elaborate the system of complex cross-disciplinary links between foundations of micro- and macro-worlds. We hope that participants and invited speakers will present new ideas and results of National studies and International cooperation in the field of CosmoParticle Physics. We'll be happy to have your suggestions on your possible contribution into the Conference Programme.

The official language of the Conference will be English. The Conference Proceedings will be published as the Supplement to "Gravitation and Cosmology". Some limited financial support will be available. On behalf of the Organizing Committee.

Yours sincerely.

Prof. Maxim Yu. Khlopov
