Meeting Description:

The central theme of this conference squares with the recent and growing interest in the fundamental problem of development of science as a social institute and part of the cultural subsystem of the society in the globalization era. We are keen to hear about ways of integrating into the international academic community and problems universities encounter in this process. The conference invites specialists in history, philosophy, sociology, linguistics, culture, politics, communication and science studies to adopt an interdisciplinary perspective to various questions, including:

1. Problems of cross-cultural communication in academic community and approaches to solving them.
2. Modern technologies of promoting research journals.
3. Organizing international conferences: from simulacra to optimal efficiency.
4. Developing models of academic mobility.
5. Enhancing cooperation of universities and academic institutions.
6. ''Flights cut short'' of international research projects of pre-revolutionary and Soviet Russian scholars.

Papers are allocated 20 minutes for presentation and 10 minutes for discussion.
