        The Conference will be held in Innopolis University. Specializing in the field of modern information technologies, Innopolis University is not only one of Russia's youngest universities, but also the new city's intellectual center. The teaching staff consists of leading Russian and foreign IT specialists and robotic science. Driven by the demands of both business and industry, the educational programs are committed to producing a high-quality stream of professionals for companies located in Innopolis.
        Innopolis is a new Russian city, located in the Republic of Tatarstan. The city's economy is based on high-tech industries. In Innopolis, a unique environment has been created that combines a modern residential infrastructure in harmony with the nature, safe environment, and broad opportunities for education and professional development.
        Taxi. The road from Kazan to Innopolis takes 40-50 minutes. You can see the route here. Average trip cost from Kazan — 600 rub using Yandex, Uber or Gett taxi services.

        Shuttle buses. There are two bus routes from Kazan to Innopolis: 1. "Kombinat Zdorovie" bus stop; 2. "Vostochny" bus station. Here you can see their timetable and route. Ticket price is 100 rub by card.

        Transfer. A daily transfer to Innopolis from the main hotels of Kazan will be organized (according to the information from the Registration forms).
        The participants will be accommodated in comfortable rooms of at the Innopolis University campus. Each room is equipped with all necessary appliances and new furniture. The photos of University Campus can be found here.
