Deadline for the submission of abstracts: 31 January 2019.

Abstracts should not exceed 650 words and should be attached to the Registration form in MS Word 1997-2003 or .rtf format (no pdf, please!). Besides, a limited number of full papers up to 3500 words (selected by the Organizing Committee) on the major subjects of the Congress will be published. Should you decide to publish a full paper, please attach it together with your abstract.

The Proceedings will be published prior to the Conference and distributed at the time of registration.

The Organizing Committee invites the participants to submit a longer version of their abstracts not exceeding 650 words that elaborate on the main points of the paper. Please, note that unlike more typical program booklets with short abstracts, where merely the subjects and goals of each paper are mentioned, we are traditionally publishing proceedings of the Congress in a book format that includes selected full papers and detailed synopses of other papers. Allowing some 650 words for the abstract, this approach enables the authors to provide a detailed synopsis of the paper, with the main points being discussed and major findings described in reasonable detail, with some references if necessary.

NB. The Organizing Committee is not in a position to do copy-editing of papers and abstracts. Thus, participants are requested to submit their inputs in a format ready for publication both from the editorial and stylistic perspective. Inputs not corresponding to these criteria cannot be published. 

Consequently, the non-native speakers are advised to have their texts checked/copy-edited by a professional language specialist, preferably a native speaker; papers containing usage or grammar mistakes will not be published.

However, if the Organizing committee consider the subject of the paper important, while the abstract could not be published due to stylistic problems, such candidates may be allowed to participate in the Congress without their abstracts being published.

Conference fee: 7500 Rubles (100 Euro).

Those who wish to participate in the Conference should fill in an on-line application form, which can be found here. Applicants will be informed on the outcome before 5 March 2019.

From 1 March till 31 March 2019 those participants whose papers are accepted, will be able to pay the conference fee online (the relevant link will be activated on the Congress web site on 1 March 2019).
