Numerous achievements of the international specialists in this field are very significant and we would like to share them with the experts representing different universities, industry associations and partners. Therefore, the scientific program will comprise sessions held by the representatives of the European, Americas, Africans and Asians professors.
During the sessions we will have an opportunity to discuss and factually evaluate our achievements.
