Summer School Overview

The summer school will feature tutorial lectures by leading industrial researchers and noted university professors focusing on current scientific and technological challenges. Summer School lectures will be held at the Main Building at Leninskiye Gory at the Lecture Hall 01 at the first floor (right side of the bldg, before the elevators). Registration will be held at the first floor of the Main Building at the recreation area behind the elevators.

The School is a part of the NGC2011 Conference and is followed by the three-days Symposium. All registered participants of the NGC2011 conference are automatically entitled to participate in the School. The school is also open to local students in Russian Federaion and is offered without any fee through the kind support and encouragement of the conference organizers and sponsors. Registration is, however, required. Please register at the School registration page at: For details please contact Andrey Fedyanin.
