Geometric Topology (A.V. Chernavsky , E.V. Shchepin)
Set Theory (V.V. Fedorchuk, V.G. Kanovei, V.A. Lyubetsky)
Topology of Low Dimensions (S.V. Matveev)
Combinatorial geometry and algebraic topology (V.M. Buchstaber)

Conference Format.

Invited one-hour speakers for the General Plenary Sessions (by the
invitation from the Organizing and Scientific Committee). Invited 45-min
speakers for the Thematic Plenary Sessions (by the invitation from the

The Organizers will arrange for a visa and transfer from and to
Sheremetevo airport for all Western participants. Unfortunately Russian
scientific institutions have very limited funds of financial support of

centralized way through our Organizing Committee.
