The symposium will be held in the city of Ufa - a large industrial,
scientific and cultural center of Russia, located near the Ural Mountains.
The climate in this region is mild; a day temperature in the middle of
August does not exceed 25°C; the weather is usually sunny and windless.
The participants of the symposium will be able to observe the natural
beauty of the picturesque landscape of this region, often called "the
second Switzerland". The city lies upon a peninsula of sorts, occupying
an elevated plateau encompassed from the three sides by the Belaya, the
Ufa and the Dyoma rivers. The guests will have an opportunity to go by
ship down the famous Belaya River during the Welcome party and to enjoy
the national cuisine during the banquet.
The headquarters of the symposium will be The Trade Union House, located
in the administrative center of Ufa near the comfortable hotel
Bashkortostan****. A congress hall with the seating capacity of more
than 450 people and conversation rooms will be provided for the symposium.
The halls are radiofied, equipped with the system of high-level ventilation
and multimedia technology.
The symposium participants will be accommodated in the best city hotels,
e.g. Bashkortostan**** (recommended), Azimuth***, Aghidel***, etc. Special
shuttle buses will carry non-resident participants of the conference from
the airport and railway station to the place of accommodation in Ufa.
