Format of Event

Due to the poor epidemiological situation (in particular, in Perm), the organizers decided to carry out the conference online, without registration fee.



The conference will take place in the main building of ICMM UB RAS (Perm, Russia) main building with accommodation in city hotels.

Official languages of the Conference are English (preferable) and Russian.

All abstracts, posters and plenary lectures should be presented in English. Regular oral presentations can be made in Russian, although English is recommended.

Abstracts and registration forms are to be sent via email to mhd@icmm.ru

Because the conference does not have any special financial support, we abandon the special issue of "Magnetohydrodynamics" this time.
