Presentation Guidelines

Oral Presentations

Presentations must be uploaded from a USB drive to the laptop in the session room prior to the beginning of your session.

Due to the tight schedule, please note that speakers are discouraged from using their own laptops. If they wish to do so, any delay in time will be at the expense of the speaker's time slot. If a talk is not uploaded in a timely manner, the Session Chair will have the option to replace it with a backup talk to ensure session continuity.

Only PowerPoint presentations (.ppt, .pptx) and Adobe Acrobat files (.pdf) will be accepted, as the available software includes Microsoft Office and Adobe Acrobat Reader.

A computer, projector, laser pointer, slide advancer, and microphone will be available in each oral session room. Audio Visual Technicians will be available to provide technical support.

Time blocks for talks are as follows:

  • Plenary talks:         40 minutes
  • Keynote talks:        30 minutes
  • Invited talks:          20 minutes
  • Contributed talks:  15 minutes

Poster Presentations

Poster boards provided at the venue are 100 cm wide and 120 cm high, suitable for size A1 landscape and & portrait and A0 portrait. Material to mount your poster will be available at poster halls.

Posters should be posted before the session starts and taken down after the session ends. The poster presenter is expected to remain at the poster during the poster session. In all cases, posters left on the boards "unattended" at the end of session will be disposed of and not returned to the author.

Please note that in order to give your presentation, you or one of your co-authors must be a registered conference attendee.

Technical Program

Information regarding the technical program will be posted here later.

Venue & Accomodation

Conference Venue

The conference sessions will be held on October 22 - 25, 2018 in conference halls of the Institute of Applied Physics of the Russian Academy of Sciences (IAP RAS).

Institute of Applied Physics RAS was established on the basis of several divisions of the Radiophysical Research Institute (RRI) of the Ministry of Higher Education of the Russian Federation in April 1977 an today it is one of the largest institutions in the structure of the Russian Academy of Sciences and occupies the leading positions in a variety of fields in modern physics. The IAP RAS was conceived and created as a multipurpose institution combining basic and applied research in the field of plasma physics, high-power electronics, physics of the atmosphere, hydrophysics, and quantum electronics.

Historical Reference

Nizhny Novgorod is a city in the administrative center (capital) of Volga Federal District and Nizhny Novgorod Oblast in Russia. From 1932 to 1990, it was known as Gorky after the writer Maxim Gorky, who was born there. The city is an important economic, transportation, scientific, educational and cultural center in Russia and the vast Volga-Vyatka economic region, and is the main center of river tourism in Russia. In the historic part of the city there is a large number of universities, theaters, museums and churches. Nizhny Novgorod is located about 400 km east of Moscow, where the Oka empties into the Volga.

The city was founded in 1221 by Prince Yuri II of Vladimir. In 1612 Kuzma Minin and Prince Dmitry Pozharsky organized an army for the liberation of Moscow from the Poles. In 1817 Nizhny Novgorod became a great trade center of the Russian Empire. In 1896 at a fair, an All-Russia Exhibition was organized. During the Soviet period, the city turned into an important industrial center. In particular, the Gorky Automobile Plant was constructed in this period. Then the city was given the nickname "Russian Detroit". During World War II, Gorky became the biggest provider of military equipment to the front. Due to this, the Luftwaffe constantly bombed the city from the air. The majority of the German bombs fell in the area of the Gorky Automobile Plant. Although almost all the production sites of the plant were completely destroyed, the citizens of Gorky reconstructed the factory after 100 days.

After the war, Gorky became a "closed city" and remained one until after the dissolution of the Soviet Union in 1990. At that time, the city was renamed Nizhny Novgorod once again. In 1985, the metro was opened. The Kremlin – the main center of the city – contains the main government agencies of the city and the Volga Federal District.
