Publications: Abstracts of the conferences are published as volumes in the series 'Ecological Studies, Hazards, Solutions'. All abstracts received before the deadline (for both non-attendees and attendees) will be published. The abstracts will be published in the next volume of the serial 'Ecological Studies, Hazards, Solutions'. The serial is included into the international Ulrich's databases, which means some established international status of the serial.

The books and articles that get the highest ranking will be awarded diplomas, will be mentioned at the closing ceremony, and will be mentioned in the press release that we give to many journal and mass media. All books received will be mentioned in the next volume of 'Ecological Studies, Hazards, Solutions', some of them with comments highlighting their value.
The books and articles to be exposed please send to:
Dr. S.A. Ostroumov, Lab of Physico-Chemistry of Biomembranes, Faculty of Biology, M.V.Lomonosov Moscow State University, Moscow 119991, Russia.
On technical reasons the books are not returned. The conference covers not only scientific but also educational and eco-ethical issues as well technological innovations. Therefore the publications (articles, books and textbooks) that deals with education, eco-ethics or applied and technological issues are within the scope of the conference and the exhibition.
Also, we invite nominations for candidates to receive the honorary titles of Aquatic Ecologist of the Year and Ecologist of the Year, with your rationale for your nomination. The process of nomination and selection of the finalists will be finished at the conference.
