  • bifurcations,
  • ordinary differential equations,
  • analytic aspects of dynamical systems,
  • spectral theory,
  • partial differential equations in functional spaces,
  • linear and nonlinear problems of mathematical physics,
  • semigroups of operators,

All the sessions will take place in the building of the Faculty of Humanities and Social Sciences, PFUR, 10a, Miklukho-Maklaya str., Moscow.

Official Languages:
Russian and English.

The registration fee is equivalent to € 95 for participants and € 50 for accompanying persons. It should be paid in roubles upon arrival. The registration fee covers expenses on abstracts and program publishing, mailing expenses, writing materials, and the reception.

Upon arrival to Moscow, you are kindly requested to come to the Registration Office, where the program booklets and the books of abstracts are to be distributed among the participants. On August 17, the Registration Office will operate from 1:00 p.m. to 8:00 p.m., and on August 18 from 9:00 a.m. to 11:00 a.m. in the building of the Faculty of Humanities and Social Sciences, PFUR, 10a, Miklukho-Maklaya str., Moscow.

The Organizing Committee will book minibuses and cars to pick up foreign participants arriving at the Moscow international airports. It is desirable to inform us about your flight number, airline, and arrival time in advance.

Foreign participants coming by train are kindly asked to inform us about the date and time of their arrival, the terminal they arrive to, train and carriage numbers. The Organizing Committee will pick them up at the railway station.

One can get around Moscow by Metro, bus, trolley bus, tram, or fixed-route taxi (minibus).

The Moscow Metro (rapid transit system) is a convenient transportation system connecting almost all parts of Moscow. The current Metro fare is 15–17 roubles per ride. In order to use Metro, one should buy a card at a special window (there are such windows at each station). The above-ground transport fare is 17–25 roubles per ride.

One can get to the Faculty of Humanities and Social Sciences, PFUR, from the Metro stations "Yugo-Zapadnaya" or "Belyaevo" on foot (20 minutes), by bus no. 196, 226, 250, 261, 699, 718, or 752 to the stop "Meditsinskiy Fakul?et", or by fixed-route taxi (minibus) no. 504M, 372M, 495M, or 196M to the same stop.

All participants from other cities (including foreign participants) will be provided with Moscow maps and schemes of Metro prior to the Opening Ceremony at the Registration Office.

Opening Ceremony and Reception:
The Opening Ceremony will take place on August 18, 2008, at 11:00 a.m. in the building of the Faculty of Humanities and Social Sciences, PFUR. The Reception will take place on August 18, 2008, at 7:00 p.m. in the same building.

Invitations to the Opening Ceremony and the Reception will be distributed only during the registration. Unregistered participants will not be able to attend the Opening Ceremony or the Reception.

Coffee Breaks:
Coffee breaks will be organized for participants during morning and evening sessions.

Arrangements have been made for reservation at the hotels "Akademicheskaya" and "Central Tourist House" and at the guest house of the Steklov Mathematical Institute. The prices are € 100–135 for a single room and € 120–150 for a double room per night. We also suggest double rooms in the guest house of PFUR (with one bathroom shared between two rooms). If two participants share a room, the price is € 30 for one person per night. Otherwise, the price is € 60 per night.

Food Service:
There are many canteens and snack bars in the neighborhood of PFUR. They are indicated on the plan you will get upon registration. Lunch or dinner costs about € 8–12.

Currency Exchange:
There are exchange offices all over Moscow, where you can exchange US dollars and Euro. Many of them belonging to large banks also exchange British pounds and other currency and accept credit cards (VISA, Master Card) and traveller's cheques (VISA, American Express). You will find some exchange offices close to PFUR on the plan.

August is usually warm in Moscow. The average temperature is 19–21°C (66–70°F). Accordingly, light and casual clothing is appropriate.

Health and Accident Insurance:
The registration fee does not cover insurance for the participants against accidents, sickness or loss of property. All participants are advised to make necessary arrangements for short-term health and accident insurance before leaving for Russia.

Electric Current:
The electric current is 220 V, 50 Hz AC in Russia.

The Conference Banquet will be organized for participants and accompanying persons. The price is € 60.

Please let us know which excursions you are going to attend. This information will affect the prices of excursions because they depend on the number of participating persons. The following options are available:

  • the Moscow Kremlin including the Armoury;
  • tour within Moscow;
  • Tretyakov Gallery;
  • Pushkin Museum of Fine Arts;
  • Sergiev Posad (also known as Zagorsk; one of the most important religious and historical centers of Russia, about 70 km from Moscow);
  • Kuskovo;
  • Kolomenskoe.

The above prices for meal, transportation, accommodation, and excursions may change by August2008.

Visa Application:
We hope that most participants and accompanying persons have already got their visas. We kindly ask you to inform us by e-mail whether you received your visa or not. If, by chance, you have not provided us with your registration form yet, please do this urgently.
