Youth Conference results
Information Satellite Systems – Reshetnev Company has summed up results of the IV Science and Research Youth Conference “Development, production, testing and operation of spacecraft and spacecraft systems”.
The Science and Research Youth Conference took place at ISS-Reshetnev facilities on August 23-25. It included ten thematic sections with more than 100 aerospace industry-specific research papers presented by young specialists from companies, research institutions and universities from across Russia.
The conference program also included roundtable discussions on experience sharing and two master classes on time management and the art of public speaking. Additionally the conference participants were taken on a tour round ISS-Reshetnev’s production sites and the company’s exhibition center.
At the closing plenary session the welcome speech was delivered by Nikolay Testoyedov, general director of ISS-Reshetnev Company, doctor of engineering, professor and the corresponding member of the Russian Academy of Sciences. He stressed the importance of the conference in developing the aerospace industry. “Every such meeting is not only a report on what has been done by this forum, these companies or this academic society – it is more of an opportunity to make new contacts and try out new ideas. I hope that ideas which you suggest will be more challenging and promising than those which your frontline managers convey at other conferences. That is why we are expecting innovative ideas and great things from you”, said Nikolay Testoyedov.
At the end of the conference the Best Paper Prizes were awarded to the most interesting and advanced papers in each section. There were 31 winning papers of which 16 papers had been submitted by ISS-Reshetnev specialists. Six plenary papers, including three papers presented by ISS-Reshetnev young engineers, attracted diplomas and special prizes. More than half of all papers presented at the conference were recommended for publication in academic journals – The SibSU Herald and Naukograd Research.
