The Symposium will be held on June 26–30 at the Saint Petersburg Academic University which is only 20 minutes away from the historic centre of Saint Petersburg.

June and July are a high tourist season in St Petersburg; it is also the time of so-called «White Nights», the fabled phenomenon of eternal twilights during the summer evenings. These warm summer «white» nights have become the inspiration behind the most famous scientific and cultural events in Saint Petersburg. As thousands of tourists are striving to visit St Petersburg in summer, please, book your accommodation in advance.


The average temperature in June is about 20 °C above zero. The rain is possible.
