4-9 July 2000, Tomsk

The conference is organized by Tomsk State University, the Centre on Reactive Media Mechanics and Ecology, the Naval Surface Warfare Center, the Novosibirsk State University of Architecture and Civil Engineering, the Siberian Branch of the Council on Combustion of the Russian Academy of Sciences, and the Tomsk Society of Mechanics-scientists and Thermophysicists. The conference will elaborate on the following topics:

  • Natural and technogenic catastrophes
  • Understanding of accidental explosions in nature and industry
  • Predicting motion and distribution of dangerous celestial natural and man-made dangerous objects
  • The problem of celestial bodies entering the dense layers of the atmosphere and the methods of changing a flight trajectory
  • Mechanisms of thermochemical destruction of celestial bodies in the atmosphere of the planets and the Earth
  • Catastrophic floods and ecology of existing water-development works
  • Principles, methods and technical facilities of the ecological monitoring of natural complexes and geotechnical systems
  • Physico-chemical foundations and control methods of contaminating media and their regeneration
  • Forest fires: initiation, spread and ecological impacts
  • Methodology of risk-analysis of new technologies for improving the ecological production safety
  • The physical and mechanical properties of aerosols and dispersed fluids
  • Computer programmes and methods for predicting ecological impacts of catastrophes
  • Higher ecological education and social monitoring
  • Ecological and social aspects of the collision catastrophe

The working languages of the conference are Russian and English. The Conference program is as follows:

  • “Round table” discussions of different aspects of the conference
  • Sale-exhibition of computer programs and methods

Sponsors are invited for mutual cooperation and participation in the conference. The program will include the names of the participants and organizations that will support the conference.

After the conference (9-10 July 2000) it is planned to conduct a forest fire (surface fire) experiment to investigate fire behaviour and spread and the application of new methods of fighting them. The design of scientific experiments can be expanded in accordance with the interests of new participants.

There will be a special cultural program for the participants of the conference, including excursions over the historical places of Tomsk.
