    1. It is necessary to adhere to the units and terminology recommended by IUPAC. All used symbols and abbreviations should be defined. Fractional part of the number should be separated by a comma. Duplication of data in the text, tables, figures and the use of tables not discussed in the text are also not allowed.
    2. Figures should be black and white (the quality of at least 300 dpi), the optimum size (size of the symbols and fonts should be commensurable with the font of the text) and inserted in the text after been mentioned. Caption to the figure should be located below it, font size 12 pt. Caption format “Fig. 1.” is recommended. The text of caption should be aligned in width. Please, provide pictures in an editable format in addition to article in electronic format. The graphs are accepted in the Origin format only.

The text of the name (aligned in width). If the table takes more than one page, numbering line should be provided below the header of the table on its first page in order from the left to the right. The second and subsequent pages of the Table should begin with the words “Continued table (space, number, point)”. Then numbering line is repeated. Table taken less than one page should not be broken. The cell sizes of the table should be minimized as it is possible. Only necessary digital data should be included.
    4. Quoted references should be numbered in order of their mentions in the text of the reference sequence number enclosed in square brackets. List of used literature is placed at the end of the article and executed without indentation in accordance with Russian State Standard 7.1-2003 (see examples). Numbering of referred materials in the text should strongly correspond to the list of references. References to the article in print or to non-published materials are not allowed.
    5. Authors can optionally divide the article into sections (font size – 14 pt, bold, name of the section aligned in width).
    6. Before bibliography, skipping the line after the main text (12 pt), without indention acknowledgments can be placed: thanks to persons, foundations, etc. (font size 12 pt, italic).
    7. On a separate page: the paper title, surnames and initials of the authors, abstract and keywords should be given in Russian according to the regulations presented in paragraph 4. In addition, the data on all authors are listed sequentially in Russian and English (full name, academic degree, academic title, place of work). An example of the article is presented here: If you use russian sources in bibliography, they must be transliterated. The next resource is recommended to translaiterate bibliography links in Russian:
    8. The articles which do not correspond to requirement of the above regulations will be returned to authors for revision.
    9. The authors are responsible for the correctness of the presentation and use of technical terms. The editorial board reserves the right to edit the style of papers. Proofs of the paper style are not available for authors of proceedings.
    10. Passing documents to the editorial office, the author agrees to the processing of personal data (RUS) and agrees with the Order of work with personal data (RUS)
    11. PUBLICATION IS FREE OF CHARGE. Electronic version of the proceedings is available for all the authors.
    12. DEADLINE: till the 10th of September each year.
