One of the reasons for holding the Minkowski meetings on the Black Sea coast is to combine a research meeting and a vacation (the resort Albena is a true paradise). To get an idea of how time is spent outside the conference room, here are some pictures of the free discussions at the Fourth Spacetime Conference held in the resort Golden Sands (~15 km south of Albena) in June 2016.

In order that everything (conference room, coffee breaks, breakfast, lunch, dinner and hotel rooms) is in the same hotel (at ~130 m from the beach), there will be three options for the conference registration (local taxes and PayPal fees included):

  • Standard registration (295 Euro) - it includes:
    • a welcome package
    • 8 coffee breaks (coffee, tea, natural spring water, pastries and salty cookies)
    • 4 lunches
    • 2 evening receptions-dinners (at ~130 m from the beach) - a Welcome reception-dinner on May 14, 2017 and a Goodbye reception-dinner on May 18, 2017.
    • the ebook version of the volume(s) with selected presentations
    • and, of course, unlimited access to the amazing beaches of Albena - a true paradize on the Black Sea coast

  • Registration and Hotel - Single Room (463 Euro) - it includes
    • Standard conference registration
    • accommodation in a single room in the 4-star Hotel "Laguna Garden" (5 nights)
    • all inclusive package - buffet style breakfast, lunch, dinner (thematic evenings - Italian, Bulgarian, Sea-Food); snacks (coffee, etc.) from 11.00 to 16.30; ice cream 11.00 to 17.00; Bulgarian beverages from 10.00 to 22.30
    • at the beach and at the swimming pool - 2 sun beds and 1 umbrella per room.

  • Registration and Hotel - Double Room (578 Euro) - it includes
    • Standard conference registration
    • accommodation in a double room in the 4-star Hotel "Laguna Garden" (5 nights)
    • all inclusive package - buffet style breakfast, lunch, dinner (thematic evenings - Italian, Bulgarian, Sea-Food); snacks (coffee, etc.) from 11.00 to 16.30; ice cream 11.00 to 17.00; Bulgarian beverages from 10.00 to 22.30
    • at the beach and at the swimming pool - 2 sun beds and 1 umbrella per room.


As the number of participants is limited to 150 the registration will be closed when that number is reached. For this reason early registration is recommended.


Registration deadline April 1, 2017. Late registration (if still available) will be, as usual, more expensive - Regular Registration fee + 100 Euro.


Students with accepted presentations may be offered a discount if financially possible. Students interested in attending but concerned about cost should submit an abstract and will be contacted before the registration deadline if a registration discount is possible.

Note on cancelation: If attendance to the conference is canceled on or after April 15, 2017, the cancelation fee is 30% of the paid registration fee. If attendance to the conference is canceled on or after May 1, 2017, there is no reimbursement of the paid registration fee.

Any questions (from students or about companions, families, etc.) should be emailed to minkowski2017@minkowskiinstitute.org.
