(1) CHOICE OF ACCOMMODATION
The Organizing Committee recommends the Korston Hotel Moscow****.
The hotel is located within walking distance (10 - 15 minutes) from the Lebedev Institute (the conference site).
A shuttle bus will be running daily between the hotel and the Institute in the morning, in the evening,
and at lunch time.
It is our pleasure to offer discount prices for the duration of the Conference.
Depending on the chosen option, the discount price ranges from Euro 140 to 230.
For example, the Comfort option is Euro 140 - 155 per night.
Precise prices (fixed in Russian roubles), details on two types of payment, and selection of a
particular accommodation option are available in the Accommodation block of your Personal Account by
pressing the [UpdateAccommodation] button.
Please make your final decision concerning the accommodation no later than March, 25.
The discounted prices apply if the payment is made before April, 20.
In case you prefer finding an accommodation in Moscow by yourself, please choose “No” in front
of the correspondent question ("Do you need accommodation in Moscow? ").
However, an additional reason why we recommend the Korston hotel is that this simplifies the visa support routine
(2) PERSONAL INFORMATION needed for the VISA APPLICATION
Filling the visa information block at your Personal Account is necessary for all participants and
accompanying persons who need a Russian entry visa.
For each participant and accompanying person,
we will prepare the documents needed for visa application as required by Russian authorities.
Applying for a visa requires a hard copy of the official invitation. We will compile it based on:
- the information you provide in the Visa block of your Personal Account;
- a scanned version or photocopy of your passport page(s) containing the holder's photograph, name,
passport number, and expiration date, which should also be uploaded to your Personal Account.
The procedure of obtaining a Russian visa may be slightly different in different countries and depends,
for example, on your travel plans inside Russia
(to be specified in the visa block of your Personal Account as well).
ALL THE NECESSARY DATA for the visa application
MUST BE RECEIVED BY THE ORGANIZERS NO LATER THAN MARCH 25, 2012
(3) ARRIVAL and DEPARTURE
The Organizing Committee will arrange the transfer between the airport and the hotel on your arrival and departure.
Please provide the arrival/departure information in the relevant block of your Personal Account
(4) TITLE and ABSTRACT of YOUR TALK
The estimated time of a talk will be 20-30 minutes, but the actual schedule may vary in different sections.
There will be a very limited number of 40-min plenary talks for general audience in theoretical physics.
We also plan to publish abstracts of the talks as a booklet before the conference and make it available
to the participants. The size of an abstract should be 5-15 lines (no more than 25 lines).
Please submit definitive TITLE and ABSTRACT of your talk via the Title/Abstract block of your
Personal Account. Because preparation of the booklet will take some time, please submit your
