Frequently Asked Questions

Will my registration guarantee my acceptance as a participant?
Currently your registration with the paid fee will guarantee your participation. However, the organizers reserve the right to decline acceptance for people or organizations whose motivation or background is incompatible with the goals of the meeting and the spirit of collaboration.

Does everyone who registers have to be a coauthor of a paper submitted to the meeting?
Currently no. However, at the later time, organizers may decide to limit the number of participants, and then, the preference will be given to the accepted speakers or poster contributors.

Does submission of an abstract guarantees its acceptance?
No, unless you are an invited speaker. The decision about an acceptance of your abstract will be made by the organizers and appointed reviewers. The authors of accepted abstracts will be notified about the decision promptly.

I (my organization) do(es) not have enough funding to support my participation at the meeting. Do I have a chance to attend?
You may apply for support on-line by choosing "Financial Aid" on the navigation bar or to seek financial assistance for attending this meeting from other sources. Organizers will gladly provide a letter of support for participants whose presentations are accepted.

Do I need a rental car in Moscow?
No, it will be only a headache for you, even if you manage to get one. Metro (underground train) is a fast and convinient way of transportation in Moscow. Organizers will help you with directions and general instructions concerning transportation in Moscow to the meeting/hotel locations and sightseeing.

How does the weather look like in Moscow in September?
The 2nd and 3rd week of September are usually warm and sunny (around 20oC / 70oF during daytime). This time of the year is called Indian Summer in Europe (L'ete Indien, Bab'e Leto). However, weather is not always predictable and colder and rainy weather (as low as 10oC / 50oF) is possible. By all means, bring with you an umbrella and a jacket to protect you from wind and rain, especially if you plan to go outside at evenins or later at night.

How do I obtain the Russian visa?
You may obtain it either from the travel agency recommended by organizers (Russian Connections) or by applying for it yourself in the nearest Russian consulate (details available at the Visa and Travel link on our site). If you apply yourself, you will need an invitation letter from the organizers. To obtain such a letter you need to send your personal information (details available at the Visa and Travel link on our site). If you use travel agency, they will apply for a visa without the need for an invitation letter as they are the inviting party. In either case, you will need to send the following documents (either to the travel agency or directly to te consulate):
  • the application form
  • three passport size photos
  • photocopy of the pages of your passport which show your photo, name, and passport number/expiration date
  • money order for the required amount. Travel agency accept personal checks but charges extra for this service.
