INVITATION AND VISA

For the most countries the official invitation ‘visa invitation’ is needed, to apply for the visa in Russian Federation. It may be tourist visa or academiv (scientific) visa. The most simple is the way to apply for tourist visa. When you book your hotel in Nizhni Novgorod city (after you fill the Registration form and receive the list of the recommended hotels from the OrgCommittee) you may ask the hotel administration to send you the visa invitation via email or fax. The invitation from the hotel and hotel voucher are enough to apply for the visa in the Russian Consulate.

If you obligatory need the academic visa invitation, you need to ask the OrgCommitee especially because it needs the complicated bureaucratic procedure with additional expencies from the OrgCommittee. In this case you need first to fill the Registration Form and your Registration Fee has to be already paid via PayPal or via Bank transfer.


The format of presentations

All the oral presentations of the main Symposium events are to be presented in English in Microsoft Power Point. Plenary (opening) talks are by the invitation of the Scientific Committee only (time for this type of presentation will be discussed separately with the invited lecturer). A session talk will be 20 min long (normally including 5 min for discussion). We expect that participants will provide the Organizing Committee with the files of Power Point Presentations during the registration, to ensure the safe uploading of files into symposium computers. For the poster presentation a surface of 1 m wide and 1.2 m high will be provided. The preferred format for poster presentations will be available on Symposium website after Jan 1, 2017. The abstracts of talks and presentations are expected from participants before April 20th, 2017. Abstracts of all presented talks and posters will be printed in the Russian Journal of Nematology, 2017, vol. 25, N 2. The style and format of the abstract is presented below. The upper limit of abstract text length is 250 words.
