The first official delegation from the Soviet Academy of Sciences ever to visit Israel is due here next week.

It will attend the Landau Memorial Conference on the Frontiers of Physics, to be held at Tel Aviv University from June 6 to 10. The conference is named in honor of the late Lev Landau, a Nobel Prize-winning physicist from the Soviet Union.

It is sponsored jointly by the Israel Academy of Sciences and Humanities, the European Physical Society and the Kolker Foundation.

The Soviet delegation will be headed by Professor Yuri Ossipyan, vice president of the Academy of Sciences in Moscow, and includes Professors L. Faddeev and I.M. Khalatnikov.

Several American Nobel laureates will attend the conference. Other eminent physicists are coming from Belgium, West Germany and Britain.
