7 October 2015 Faculty of Sociology Press-Center

The International Science Forum of Young Scientists "Science of the future – science of the youth" took place from September 29 to October 3 in Sevastopol, on the premises of the Sevastopol branch of the Moscow Banking School of the Central Bank of Russian Federation.

The scientific event was organized by the Ministry of Education and Science of Russian Federation and
Sevastopol State University for the first time. The main objective of the Forum was to bring to the fore the best expertise and research outcomes obtained by the young scientists and specialists working at the Russian educational and science institutions, as well as to promote and develop young people’s social, scientific and innovative practices.

Several competitions were held in the framework of the Forum: International Exhibition of High Technologies and Innovations, the All-Russian Engineering Competition devoted to the problems and objectives of the development of Russian regions and Republic of Crimea, along with the Competition of students’ fundamental science and research projects and engineering students’ applied science and research projects in eleven fields of expertise. This made it possible to organize a one-week forum for science communication between students, young scientists and leading representatives of the world scientific community and largest business structures.

The project of the ASU Faculty of Sociology postgraduate student Dinara Nevaeva was presented at one of the major sections, Liberal Arts and Social Sciences. Her report was dedicated to the social exclusion of the senior and old-age citizens. Each of the 43 participants had attended the poster session first. The main idea of the session was that prior to the start of the section, all the students had prepared the posters advertising their work. The Commission of Experts had a chance to get acquainted with the displayed posters. Every participant had only two minutes in order to interest the experts, to give a brief review of the objectives, tasks and results of the research.

According to results of the poster session, there were only 9 projects listed for the finals. Our postgraduate student was announced among the finalists of the section. On the following day, the finalists were given the opportunity to speak in front of the experts. Dinara's presentation attracted interest of the section participants and the Commission. Questions concerning the research methods, results and planned prospects of the work with the elderly were discussed. There were 12 experts from different countries and every one of them agreed that the research of the population ageing is of great relevance.

The closing ceremony of the International Science Forum took place on October 2 in a big assembly hall of the Banking School. Lyudmila M. Ogorodova, Deputy Minister of Education and Science of the Russian Federation, noted the high standard of the projects presented at the sections as well as competitions. She thanked the participants and organizers of the event and expressed her hope for the continuation of the Forum in the coming years. The committee chairman awarded the 3d and 2d place winners. The organizers decided to keep the suspense and announce the 1st place winners in the sections simultaneously, thus uniting 11 Forum finalists on the stage. Dinara Nevaeva became the winner of the competition. Her project was unanimously acknowledged by the expert commission the best in the section.

The Forum Award Ceremony concluded with creating a new tradition – the tradition of passing on from year to year the energy of the future to the participants of the future conferences! All those present in the assembly hall were passing a large canvas symbolizing the integrated network of science, research and unity of purpose – the development of our country.
