Registration of all our paticipants will take place in Lomonosovsky Building of Moscow State University (Universitet metro station, Lomonosovsky avenue, 27 / 1 bldg., Mirror Hall).

The campus is located in the famous district of Moscow “Yugo-Zapadniy” (South – West area) and can be reached easily by taxi, metro, busses etc. The Main Building of MSU is visible from almost any point around and is not far from the metro station “Universitet” (“University”) which belongs to a historic “red line” of the metro transportation system crossing Moscow from beneath. It will take a couple of bus stops or 10 – 15 mins by feet down to the Lomonosovski avenue to get one of the well – know symbols of Moscow – a huge highlander Main Building of MSU which is not possible to miss!
