Please, take notice:

1. Only INDIVIDUAL abstracts are permitted to submission.

    2. Organizing Team and Expert Committee will not consider abstracts submitted by the group of authors and sent by e-mail.     


The abstracts are a summary of your research (not an application for a planned work in the future).


 Abstracts should include:

• Statement of the problem and a brief explanation of its relevance.

• A brief description of the main findings of the researchers on the topic and your personal contributions.

• Research part - an explanation the way you got results, as well as brief conclusions about their significance for further work in this area and / or prospects for practical application.

• References (no more than 3 sources).

Abstracts: 1 page (3000 signs including gaps and references).

The references should be listed in alphabetical order by the author's surname.

The abstracts should contain references to all sources in the reference list.

Please note! When submitting the abstracts you put references into specific boxes, do not number the list by yourself. After you save the abstracts, the system will automatically put numbers for references. In order to put a new reference source press the "Enter".

Images (format jpg and png files) are submitted into specific boxes.

The final decision on the inclusion of the report in the program remains with the Organizing Committee.

Abstracts that do not coincide the requirements, will be rejected.

The sessions will be in distant form.

The program and requirements for presentations of reports will be published on the session page, as well as sent to participants in their personal accounts after the abstracts examination procedure is completed.

The materials will include abstracts from those authors who took part in the distant sessions.

Participants who will take part in also will receive certificates.

Authors of the best reports will be awarded with diplomas of the conference.
