## Announcement:

# " D-branes and Mirror Symmetry "

Research Institute for Mathematical Sciences

February/5-February/8, 2002.

In recent developments in superstring theory D-branes and mirror
symmetry have played significant roles and it turned out that
it is important to have close communications with related developments
in mathematics.

The purpose of this workshop is to provide an opportunity of communications
between string theorists and mathematicians and to discuss prospects
of future developments.
