KAZAN, March 12 (Itar-Tass) – The Frontiers of Science 2013 symposium of young scientists of Russia and the UK, which is opening in the capital of Tatarstan on Tuesday, will discuss the latest scientific ideas.
Frontiers of Science meetings bring together future leaders in science in all disciplines to forge new and innovative links with their counterparts from different countries, and to explore opportunities for international and cross-disciplinary collaboration. Participants are encouraged to present and discuss the most pressing or stimulating research questions at the frontiers of their field, and to identify new and emerging scientific challenges on the horizon of current knowledge. The meetings usually involve around eight sessions, spread over three or four days, and their content is devised by a mixed team of scientists from the participating countries.
“This international forum is held in Russia for the first time,” the forum coordinator Dilyara Yakubova told Itar-Tass. Taking part in it are 35 scientists from each side that are engaged in the study of natural sciences at the age under 45 years. The task of the symposium, which was founded in 2005 on the initiative of the British Royal Society is the exchange of ideas and international cooperation.
Representatives of Oxford, Cambridge and London Universities have arrived in Kazan. Researchers from Moscow, St. Petersburg and Kazan are taking part in the meeting from the Russian side.
“The symposium will be conducted in the traditional workshops – biology, neuroscience, physics, astronomy, geology, microbiology, chemistry,” Vice President of the Academy of Sciences of Tatarstan Dzhavdet Suleimanov said. At the request of the Kazan side the current meeting’s agenda also includes the information technology workshop. “The British experience in this field is of great interest to us,” he explained.
