The head of the research group of Statistical Physics and Non-Linear Dynamics at the Institute of Physics of Humboldt-University at Berlin, Prof. Dr. Igor M. Sokolov, held the opening lecture. The theme was connected with one of the hottest topics of the modern nanoscience, structure formation in monomolecular films (water and ethanol, in the presented case) covered by graphene. Another plenary lecture presented by the participant from Humboldt-University at Berlin and Potsdam University, Prof. Dr. Alexey V. Chechkin, reviewed modern problems of anomalous diffusion.

Several talks presented results of the collaborative projects between researchers from Kursk State University and European Union. One of them is done in cooperation with University of Silesia in Katowice: the experiments carried out in Poland and their theoretical interpretation evaluated in Russia on thermodynamical properties of bromosubstituted hydrocarbons. These substances are important for the pharmaceutical organic synthesis. 
Another project on intermolecular interactions in liquids is leading to associates’ formation and is one of the key research topics of Laboratory of Molecular Acoustics of Research Center for Condensed Matter Physics at Kursk State University. The recent progress of the research was obtained due to the collaboration with Ulm University (Germany).

It should be pointed out that the new cooperation agreement between Kursk State University and the University of Silesia in Katowice was signed during the conference. It officially supports the collaboration for years to come between scientists from the Institute of Chemistry (University of Silesia in Katowice) and the Research Center for Condensed Matter Physics (Kursk State University) in the field of Molecular Acoustics.
