Ginzburg Conference on Physics
May 28 - June 2, 2012, Moscow

We are pleased to inform you that the preliminary schedule of the scientific program is available now at the conference site - Time Table.
Also we ask you to check the title of your talk at Talks .

If you have not done it before please provide us with Title and Abstract of your talk urgently


We strongly recommend to use PDF (.pdf) for presentation as the most universal format. Almost all software allows export to PDF. If you do have some special features in your presentation which cannot be converted to PDF the best solution is to use your own equipment (notebook; in case of MacBook don't forget the VGA adapter!). For example we cannot guarantee proper look of Microsoft PowerPoint (.ppt) presentation as there are inconsistencies between versions and "lack of font" problems.

We also strongly recommend to upload your presentation file into your Personal conference account (in the Talk information block). This allows to exclude any unexpected problem “just before session”.

If you have ANIMATION/MOVIES in your presentation please write a comment after uploading (for example "slides 2 and 5 have animation") as in this case we need to check if we have corresponding video-codec installed.

If you are going to use transparencies (which is not recommended) please inform us in advance


Registration desks will be open:
in the hotel Korston

May 26 14:00 to 18:00

The transfer from the airport to the hotel will be arranged by the Organizing Committee. We hope that we already have information about your arrival and departure flights. If not yet please do not forget to fill the corresponding field in your Personal account as soon as possible.

If for any reason you do not need a transfer from the airport please inform us in advance.

Important!!!: After the customs control at the airport, please carefully look for our affiliated driver (who will also be looking for you). They will be those, and only those people, carrying posters with GC2012 logo. They also will have a list of participants. (Do not contact with private drivers who will also offer their service.)

In case of unexpected delays after landing or long problems with detecting a driver call the mobile number +7 909 670 7008 (Kristina, Triumff Service company).

Please use this phone only if you are delaying for more then an hour after landing and if you can not find a driver (and he can not find you) for more then 10-15 minutes.

In case of emergency you can contact Organizing Committee +7 905 539 6289 (valid from May 26 till May 31).

SAVE these PHONE NUMBERS in your mobile phone or have them PRINTED during arrival.

Also to make us able to contact you in the case of any unexpected changes and to simplify identifying you when you contact us by emergency phone please COMMUNICATE us YOUR TRAVEL PHONE MOBILE number. You can do it via your personal account [UpdateContactInfo] or by mail. If you have already entered another phone (office one, etc) you can enter another one -- we will use the last one when contacting you in Moscow
