ETU "LETI", Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers (IEEE), National Research University of Electronic Technology "MIET" and Glyndwr University (UK) organized an event that was held from 29th January to 1st February. Students and young researchers from Russia, Ecuador, Finland, Czech Republic, Great Britain, Italy, Turkey, Brazil, Syria and Egypt participated in it.

At a plenary meeting that opened the conference Dmitrii V. Gaivoronskii, Vice-Rector for Research at ETU "LETI" in his welcoming speech talked about great researchers of ETU – Alexander S. Popov and Zhores I. Alferov. He also mentioned ETU’s main areas of development – micro- and nanoelectronics, carbon, diamond and power electronics, and telecommunications.

“I am glad to see you at our university. I hope that you will be able to make new friends and find new ideas for future scientific cooperation. I wish you luck!”

Mikhail Y. Shestopalov, Head of Automation and Control Processes Department stated that the conference is a good opportunity to exchange ideas and ask important questions.

Two reports were made at the plenary meeting. First, Yurii V. Filatov, Head of Department of Laser Measurement and Navigation Systems told the audience about gravitational waves and development of optical gyros. Next, Professor Karsten Vandrup from Zealand Institute of Business and Technology ZIBAT (Denmark) made a report about the problem of cybercrime and sociotechnical aspects of it.

Then all speakers were divided into 11 groups. In total 309 reports were presented by young researchers from 56 universities and 11 research organizations. The areas that these young scientists work in are very different from each other:  from telecommunication, plasma and photonics to environment protection and management. For most of them this experience was their first time participating in such an important international conference and implementing international standards of presenting reports in English.  

Research papers by these young scientists will be included into IEEE Xplore and SCOPUS database.
