On April 12, the 50th International Youth Scientific Conference “Gagarin Readings” ended at Moscow Aviation Institute. Participants from 12 countries and 77 cities of Russia presented their projects. More than 850 reports were presented at the conference.

The conference was attended by students, postgraduates and young scientists under the age of 27, who represented higher education institutions, enterprises, research centers and institutes - more than 90 organizations in total, including 43 universities.

Among the most active participating universities are Moscow Aviation Institute, Rybinsk State Aviation Technical University named after P.A. Solovyov, VUNTS Air Force, Samara University, the Baltic State Technical University "VOENMEH" named after D.F. Ustinov.

The scientific program consisted of sections in 10 areas: “Aviation systems”, “Aviation, rocket engines and power plants”, “Control systems, informatics and electric power industry”, “Information and telecommunication technologies of aviation and rocket and space systems”, “Economics and management of enterprises of the aerospace complex”, “Rocket and space systems”, “Robotics, intelligent systems and aviation armament”, “Mathematical methods in aerospace science and technology”, “New materials and production technologies in aviation and rocket and space technology” and the international session.

At the international session reports were presented in English. The projects were defended by young scientists from India, China, Colombia, Egypt, Turkey and other countries.

In addition to the thematic sections, the conference program included lectures by Alexey Frolov, Director of the “Internet of Things and Wireless Communication Technologies” program at Skolteсh, “Building successful career in telecommunications: global trends in the development of wireless networks” and Tatyana Monina, Head of the Industrial Design Department at Russian State University of Design and Applied Arts (Stroganov University), “Industrial design. From conception to implementation”, and immersive performance “Gagarin and Korolev” with the participation of actors from the Konstantin Kozhevnikov’s Storytelling Theater.

Following the results of the conference, a collection of abstracts will be published in electronic form.

The first student “Gagarin Readings” were held at MATI (later the Russian State Technological University named after K.E Tsiolkovsky) in the spring of 1974 – on the eve of Cosmonautics Day. After a while, the event grew into an all-Russian and then into an international youth scientific conference, which was attended by several generations of students, postgraduates and young scientists from more than 300 universities, research institutes and industrial enterprises in Russia, near and far abroad. After the merger of the two universities in 2015, MAI continued the tradition of hosting a conference.
