Symposium Location

Symposium will take place in city Tomsk. Tomsk one of the most old city Siberia, was founded in 1604 originally as an Ostrog, on right bank of the river on southeast West-Siberian lowland. Siberian Afini is the modern unofficial name of Tomsk. Now Tomsk city is large cultural, educational and scientific centre of West Siberia, where there are 9 Universities, 15 Scientific Institutions, and the Special Economic Zone of Technical Innovation Type. The city is famous for its beautiful wooden and stone architectures XVIII-XX centuries. It is Siberian baroque, classic and modern styles. Beside architectural monuments there are a lot of interesting places related to history, culture and nature of Tomsk city and it’s around.
