These Conference and School are devoted to the 110th birthday anniversary of Georgij (George) Antonovich Gamow, one of the great physicists and cosmologists of the 20th century. Gamow has made an important and decisive contribution to modern physics, cosmology and biology. His three most significant contributions to science are: • He discovered the quantum nature of alpha-decay in nuclear physics (1928). • He proposed the theory of the Hot Universe (1946-1953). • He found the clue to the genetic code in biology (1954). George Gamow was born in Odessa. Here, he leaved the secondary school and was for two years a student of the Novorossiisk University of Odessa. Wherever Gamow lived, he retained his character and his sharp Odessian humor. During the conference, participants will be able to visit the sights of Odessa, to see and feel its colour and to walk along the Gamow places described in his book “My World Line: an Informal Autobiography”. These Conference and School will be the 5th Gamow Conference in Odessa, after those in 1994, 1999, 2004 and 2009 years, and the 14th annual Gamow School, starting from 2001 year. We intend to bring together experts on the subjects of modern astrophysics, cosmology, high energy physics and biology with a number of interested scientists and students, in order to discuss the most recent developments and problems related to the topics of the activities, exchange of ideas, review major experimental and theoretical efforts. The program will consist of series of coordinated review lectures supplemented by short reports, presentations of posters and discussions of the hottest problems in observable Universe. The working language is English.
