Particularly, the additional collection of papers will include the best (in the editorial staff’s opinion) articles of Russian and foreign researchers.

The hosts of the conference will be pleased to review your original works related to the Conference topics, which were not published before.

The papers and articles of last conference (2017) was indexed in the Scientific Electronic Library and the Web of Scince and Scopus databases.
