Abstract submission

The conference program will feature a number of contributed talks. When registering, please tell us if you wish to give a talk. Abstracts should be submitted by March 1. A decision will be made by March 15.

Please note that if you need a visa (whether or not you intend to give a talk), then you should register as soon as possible. Normally, there should be enough time if you register by early April. However, in some cases, Russian authorities may take up to one month to issue an invitation letter. It will then take a week to deliver the invitation and another week for the embassy to issue the visa, once the application is made. So you should plan this in advance. Please also note that it is better to book your visit to the embassy. We will do our best to help you, so feel free to contact us and ask any questions! We are looking forward to meeting you in Russia.
