We think that our students must be acquainted with the latest achievements of the science and we consider of great importance the integration of science and universitarian education, - said in his opening speech YSU Rector, Professor Aram Simonyan.

President of European Astrological Society Yoakhim Crauter thinks that this kind of conference provides with an opportunity to learn about the latest achievements of European countries in this area of science, and as for Armenia, our country is a well known one in the area of Astronomy.

We can remember about our numerous previous conferences, those are four, but this time it is already a congress , - said Academician-secretary of Physico-mathematical Department of NAS RA Youry Chilingaryan. He states that Armenia has chance to learn more about the spheres of Astronomy, which are not studied here to apply them in future.

The conference will deal with various spheres. Seven symposiums and six special sections are expected, which will be held at the Faculty of Physics of YSU. Astronomy will be discussed and studied during five days by 300 scientists from different European countries.
