Participants are recommended to arrive by train Moscow-Kursk No105. The participants of the post-conference tour are recommended to return Moscow by the train No83 from Liski

Touristic assistance and special needs such as meeting at the airport, transfers in Moscow, booking of train tickets to Kursk and back to Moscow, hotel booking at lower prices in Moscow and elsewhere, individual tours over Russia etc. will be possible via the Technical conference partner - UniFest by special request: isfwp@unifest.ru.

RELATED EVENTS:

Those who are interested in more extensive scientific tour in Russia could concern themselves with Ultra-Continental WRB Field Workshop in Central Sakha (Yakutia), East Siberia, 17-23 of August. This tour is a rare opportunity to see and discuss with specialists in soil classification unique and really fascinating ultra-continental permafrost-affected soils. ISWP-XII Organizers hope that these events linked in time will attract to our Symposium and Field Seminar specialists in soil classification who are particularly interested in classification of paleosols. Information on Ultra-continental WRB Field Workshop can be found in the Newsletter of IUSS Commission 1.4:
