The conference takes place at the Faculty of Biology in the campus of Moscow State University on Sparrow Hills (Vorob’evy Gory). Tha campus is located about halfway between the center of Moscow at the Kremlin and the city's current outskirts. The campus has much peculiar history, and is inimitable from the standpoint of architecture and its location as the roof of the city.
Getting to the campus
If you use public transport, the closest to the Faculty building is the metro station “LOMONOSOVSKY PROSPEKT” (the Yellow line, west-south). In a 5 mins walk uphill toward the University Main Building along the Lomonosovsky prospekt avenue you will encounter a long П-shaped 5-storied building. Proceed to the entrance from the courtyard.
From the metro station “UNIVERSITET” (the Red line, west-south) you can either walk three bus stops downhill passing by the Main Building, or take a brief lift by bus or trolleybus to the “Mendeleevskaya ulitsa” stop.
Detailed routes of on-ground transport and other useful city travel information can be found at the Moscow Transport portal.
The venue address is Leninskie Gory 1, building 12. Once on place, follow the signs to find the registration desk.
