The conference fee is 5000 RUB (around 70 EUR). This includes participation, coffee breaks, lunches and the conference dinner at the conference venue.

Participation is free for local scholars who wish to attend the talks without making a presentation. However, if such participants wish to attend lunches or the conference dinner, they have to pay the fee.

The conference fee is to be paid during registration upon arrival. We ask participants who are not presenting to notify us in advance so that we can prepare the badges and conference materials.

An optional post-conference excursion will also be organized, to be paid for separately.
