ATTENTION! Starting from 2019, citizens of some countries have the opportunity to obtain an electronic visa to visit St. Petersburg in a simplified manner. Details are here: https://electronic-visa.kdmid.ru/spb_home_en.html
You may need a visa to come to Russia. If so, we will be glad to provide you with the standard supporting documents you may need.
Your request for visa support must be forwarded to us BEFORE September 15, 2021, due to the very long processing procedure.
Attention! We offer visa support only to authors of papers that have successfully passed the double-blind peer review stage.
A Russian visa is required for nationals of most countries. However, recently Russia established a visa-free regime with several European, Asian and South American countries. To check whether the visa-free regime is applicable in your case, please contact the Russian consulate in your country. Contact info is available here.
To obtain a Russian visa, you first need to obtain an invitation (visa support) issued by an authorized organization. Then you should take that invitation to the Russian consulate in your country in order to obtain an actual visa. The Russian visa support is not an invitation letter from a host in Russia; it is a legal document including the traveller’s passport information and travel information. The Russian visa invitation can only be obtained through an authorized agency.
Preparing an official invitation, approved by the Federal Migration Service takes a lot of time.
We kindly ask you to send us (to email@example.com) before September 1, 2021 your request with the following information:
The conference organizers respect and understand the high employment of authors and do their best to accept all good papers for publication. However, the tight deadlines for the publication preparation dictated by the publishing house (Springer) force us to refuse to accept papers that are so late that this leads to a delay in publishing the entire proceedings.
Yes, of course. At your request, we will make for you a certificate of participation and/or a letter of confirmation of the acceptance of your paper for publication.
The requirements of the template must be followed very strictly. These are the requirements of the Publishing House (Springer). They do not accept incorrectly formatted papers and the organizers do not have the resources to format them. Please be careful.
