The goal of the conference is to bring together researchers studying various forms of complexity (in the most general sense of this notion and not only the algorithmic complexity) in mathematics and mathematical physics. In memory of Bella Subbotovskaya, a mathematician who worked in the algorithmic complexity theory and an unknown hero of Soviet mathematics.
