The concepts of noncommutative space-time and quantum groups have foundgrowing attention in quantum field theory and string theory. The mathematical concepts of quantum groups have been far developed by mathematicians and physicists of the Eastern European countries. Especially, V. G. Drinfeld fromUkraine, S. Woronowicz from Poland and L. D. Faddeev from Russia have beenpioneering the field. It seems to be natural to bring together these scientists with researchers in string theory and quantum field theory of the Western European countries. From another side, supersymmetry, as one of examples of noncommutative structure, was discovered in early 70's in the West by J. Wess (one of the co-Directors) and B. Zumino and in the East by physicists from UkraineV. P. Akulov and D. V. Volkov. Therefore, Ukraine seems to be a natural place to meet.
