St.Petersburg is a wonderful city to visit. It is famous for its architecture, its unique beauty and rich culture.

The second largest city in the Russian Federation, incorporated as a federal subject of Russian Federation. St.Petersburg is often referred to as the Cultural Capital of Russia, or even Northern Venice, due to its many water- ways and bridges. In fact, 68 rivers and canals flow through the historic city centre in all directions, dissecting it into 42 islands, with 580 bridges between them. Many of these bridges are masterpieces of engineering and architecture. Among Paris, Rome and Venice, the historical city centre of St.Petersburg has been declared a World Heritage site by the UNESCO.

Peter the Great St. Petersburg Polytechnic University
Peter the Great St. Petersburg Polytechnic University, more habitually known in Russia and abroad as the St. Petersburg Polytechnic Institute, was founded in 1899 on the wave of economic and political successes of Russia. It was built as a university campus to the northwest from the then city borders. While now the university is an integral part of St. Petersburg, it still is located in the greenest district of the city with good transportation connections to the historical center of St. Petersburg and other districts of the city.

The conference will be held in the Congress center of Peter the Great St. Petersburg Polytechnic University. The modern congress center with comfortable halls is equipped with everything necessary for conferences and other events. The center is located in the heart of the university campus on in the north of St. Petersburg in walking distance from the Metro station Polytechnicheskaya.
