REQUIREMENTS TO THE PAPERS


The program of the Forum will primarily include conceptual papers with new ideas and approaches, analytical reviews, reports and communications containing the results not published earlier. Papers dealing with the mechanics problems not directly associated with heat transfer, as well as contributions on thermophysical properties of the matter will not be accepted.


SUBMISSION AND SELECTION OF PAPERS


Paper selection will be based upon review of extended abstracts. The abstract of up to 4 pages of A4 format prepared according to the template on the Forum website: mif16.itmo.by/doc/Template_eng.doc is to present clearly the contents of the paper (communication).

FORUM VENUE



The hotel "President-Hotel" opened its doors to its first guests on May 3, 2013. The main building was built on the place of the well known to many guests of the capital hotel "Oktyabrskaya ". Of course, built on the Turkish project, a new hotel is radically different from its predecessor, and is ready to offer a completely different level of service. The hotel name is not accidental, as "President-Hotel" specially prepared to receive dignitaries. By the way, the hotel is the best place in the capital for holding high-level meetings of heads of states and governments, political and business events, international congresses and forums. The hotel building has 14 rooms of various size and functionality. Capacity is about 1 300 participants.

The hotel is located in the heart of Minsk, in its business and historical center. The location gives guests the opportunity to reach any point of the city easily and quickly. Within walking distance you can find a large number of attractions of the city and several beautiful squares and gardens, which will help to feel the real atmosphere of Minsk. Also near the hotel there is a sightseeing bus route No. 1, where you can ride on one of the main avenues of the city for the cost of a single ordinary trip by public transport.

If you wish to buy souvenirs or go to the shopping streets, you can do it from the hotel. A wider range of products will offer GUM, which is on a five-minute walk away from the hotel. Also a number of shopping centers are nearby the hotel, so everyone will find everything you need.

FOR OVER SEVERAL YEARS THE "PRESIDENT-HOTEL" HAS BEEN A SAMPLE OF FLAWLESS SERVICE AND ELEGANT STYLE. IT’S A PERFECT PLACE FOR INTERNATIONAL SCIENTIFIC EVENTS


PUBLICATION OF THE PROCEEDINGS OF THE FORUM


By the time of the Forum, the Organizing Committee is planning to print a Book of Extended Abstracts in the original language and a Book of Abstracts in English. The papers (maximum 10 pages) and communications (maximum 5 pages) in the original language will be available on CD-R. The plenary and keynote papers, and also round table discussions will be published after the Forum in a special issue of the «Journal of Engineering Physics and Thermophysics», «Heat Transfer Research», «High Temperature Material Processes».
