First Announcement

July 1–6, 2019, Kazan, Russia

Dear Colleagues and Friends!

On behalf of the RWP'2019 Program Committee it gives me great pleasure to invite you to RWP'2019, to be held in the Kazan city.
Kazan is the capital and largest city of the Republic of Tatarstan, Russia. With a population more than 1.200.000 people it is the sixth most populous city in Russia. Kazan is one of the largest religious, economic, political, scientific, educational, cultural and sports centers in Russia. Kazan lies at the confluence of the Volga and Kazanka Rivers in European Russia, about 715 kilometers (444 mi) east from Moscow. The Kazan Kremlin is a World Heritage Site.

At the beginning of the 19th century Kazan Federal University and printing press were founded by Alexander I. It became an important center for Oriental Studies in Russia. The Qur'an was first printed in Kazan in 1801. Kazan Federal University (founded in 1804) is third oldest university in Russia after Saint Petersburg State University (1724) and Moscow State University (1755). Now there are 44 institutes of higher education in Kazan. More than 140,000 students are educated in the city.

Kazan is a major scientific center in Russia. Kazan formed a big number of scientific areas and schools (mathematical, chemical, medical, linguistic, geological, geobotanical, etc.). Scientific discoveries are a subject of special pride, including: the creation of non-Euclidean geometry (Nikolai Lobachevsky), the discovery of the chemical element ruthenium (Karl Ernst Claus), the theory about the structure of organic compounds (Aleksandr Butlerov), the discovery of the electron paramagnetic resonance (Yevgeny Zavoisky) and acoustic paramagnetic resonance (Semen Altshuler) and many others.

The conference would take place at the Institute of Physics of the Kazan Federal University.

The main areas (sections) of the conference:

Section 1. Wave propagation and remote sensing of the upper atmosphere and space.
Section 2. Propagation of radio waves of meter - sub-millimeter bands in the troposphere and urbanized environments.
Section 3. Propagation of the optic waves in atmosphere and laser sounding of nature environment.
