    In order to avoid misunderstanding, please fill in the Registration form attentively and correctly.

    To enter the Russian Federation, all conference participants and all accompanying persons must get a Russian Visa.
    A Visa is required for all persons who have passports.
    The passport must be valid at least 6 months past the date of your departure from Russia.

    The Organizing Committee strongly recommends that you should start visa formalities in proper time.
    Either a Tourist Visa or a Business Visa can be issued.
    So please find out beforehand what kind of visa you need since it happened that some registrants could not attend the Conference because they had to execute Business Visa instead of the Tourist Visa and failed to get their Invitations and Visas in time.

    The service-agent of the conference will render the conferees and their accompanying persons the following services:
  • preparation of documents for getting the Russian Visas
  • providing transportation
  • making hotel reservations
  • arranging cultural program.

    The Conference is traditionally held in the White Nights season - the high tourist season.
    Please bear in mind that the city authorities and hotel administration had to set exacting requirements concerning the period of time over which the guest (Conference participant) is going to stay at a hotel, terms of payment and cancellation of reserved hotel rooms.
    If you reserve a room on your own and select a hotel not included into the list of recommended hotels we will not be able to guarantee your free bus transportation from the hotel to the Conference and from the drink reception to the hotel.
    The sight-seeing tour of St. Petersburg for the Conference participants will take place on 28 May after the evening session. Experienced guides will make you acquainted with our city history and its architectural sights. The sight-seeing tour language is English.

    Full information on the Conference including Preliminary program, Conference Schedule, Conference Registration form, as well as guidelines on ordering services through the Conference service-agent (visa support, hotel reservation and cultural program) are available on the website:
