The Conference aims at pursuing international communication between specialists in different fields of Phonetics. Integration of the Russian Federation into Global Scientific and Educational Space brings new opportunities of sharing experience and enrichment of knowledge in the Theory of Phonetics and Phonology, acoustic and perceptual analysis, computer speech modeling, methods of teaching pronunciation for foreign learners, cross-language studies and in other directions. We hope that the Conference will contribute to working out more efficient ways of dealing with challenging issues in the areas mentioned.
During the conference breaks, delegates will enjoy the city of Blagoveshchensk and take the opportunity to experience a unique European culture sitting next to an Asian neighbour. Blagoveshchensk is also located next to the largest space development in Russian Federation: the Vostochny Cosmodrome. With the construction of the Cosmodrome, Blagoveshchensk will become a prestigious scientific and education centre in Far East. Now it is the best time to establish collaborations with the Amur State University before the rush begins.
Blagoveshchensk was founded in 1856. Population: 219,221 (2002 Census). Located 7,985 km east of Moscow at the confluence of Amur and Zeya Rivers opposite to the Chinese city of Heihe, Helongjiang province.
