Dean of YSU Faculty of Physics Roland Avagyan welcomed members of the Russian “Rosatom” Corporation’s “TVEL” Delegation to Armenia for the purpose of developing cooperation in the field of education, culture and humanitarian cooperation.

 

“The visit of the delegation headed by the Vice President of the Company Konstantin Sokolov is another step towards the development of cooperation between Armenia and “Rosatom” Corporation in the sphere of science and education, which has been actively developing for several years,” - said the dean of the faculty and presented some details of the corporation’s activity.

 

Konstantin Sokolov thanked the management of the Faculty of Physics for their hospitality and special interest in the field.

 

“The Armenian-Russian cooperation in the field of nuclear energy is sustainable, strong and reliable. For many years, TVEL has been supplying fuel to the Armenian Nuclear Power Plant and actively working with its Armenian colleagues. The Armenian Nuclear Power Plant, which is operated solely for peaceful purposes, is one of the most reliable nuclear power plants in the world, for which we are grateful to our partners,” - said the head of the Russian delegation and added that he welcomes the participation of students in the conference.

 

 

Then, members of the delegation, who are experts and specialists from various divisions of “Rosatom”, presented their main activities, the latest technologies and goals used in business processes through video footage and video clips.

 

After the seminar, students of the Faculty of Physics took part in the demonstration of the art and industrial project of “TVEL”, which aims to reveal the aesthetic aspects of atomic energy production, as well as technologies and equipment.

 

The aim of the conference, organized by the Chair of Theoretical Physics of YSU Faculty of Physics and RA State Committee of Science, is to unite scientists who study compact stars, superficial physics, gravitation and cosmology, pulsars and neutron stars.

 

Armen Sedrakyan, Foreign Member of NAS RA, researcher at the Institute of Theoretical Physics of Yerevan State University and professor at Goethe University in Frankfurt, said that the conference was held for the first time in 2008: “It was celebrated Victor Hambardzumyan’s 100th anniversary that year and we decided to organize a conference, which would include topics such as Hambardzumyan had researched.”

 

The next conference was organized in 2013, dedicated to the 100thanniversary of the founder of the Chair of Theoretical Physics of YSU Faculty of Physics Gurgen Sahakyan. Then it was decided to organize a conference in Yerevan every two years, which will bring together scientists from the field around the world.

 

Year after year, the geography of the participant countries, as well as the number of scientific groups involved in compact stars, gravitation and cosmology expanded.

 

 

Members of the organizational committee Professor of the Chair of Theoretical Physics of the Faculty of Physics, Professor of the Theoretical Physics Laboratory of the Institute of Physics, Aram Saharyan and senior researcher of the same laboratory, Anna Kotanjyan confirmed that YSU administration, Rector Aram Simonyan have greatly contributed to the conduction of the conference.

 

The organizers mentioned that this conference was distinguished by the fact that after the thirty year break, members of the Russian Gravitational Society, one of the creators of the modern theory of the inflation of the universe, the chief researcher of the Institute of Landau, RF AS Academician A. Starobinsky, Vice President, Professor of Kazan Federal University S. Sushkov, German famous scientist Horst Stoker, many talented scientists from the Dubna Joint Research Institute for Nuclear Research, Brazil, France, Russia, Spain, as well as young scientists from Iran, India took part in it.

 

During the conference, in addition to the reports, various discussions were also held.

 

After the conference, YSU Vice-rector on Scientific Policy and International Cooperation Gegham Gevorgyan hosted famous professors. He answered the questions of scientists-lecturers and suggested to those who wish to cooperate in future to make cooperation plans, contracts and submit them to the YSU administration to discuss and develop them.

A unique regional moot court competition on criminal law and criminal proceeding is being held since 2016-2017 academic year.

 

As in previous year, this year the contest is held in 2 stages. Written - in which students report their arguments on the issue from the point of view of the accusation and defense parties, and then oral - during which representatives of 6 teams, who have collected the highest number of points in the previous stage, compete with each other.

 

In the semi-final, each team plays twice as a defender in one game and the other as a prosecutor. The two teams that have the most points in the semi-final compete with each other to win the Cup.

 

This year eight Armenian universities and two teams from Artsakh State University had applied for the competition. The following teams successfully overcame the written stage:

 

Yerevan State University 1,
Yerevan State University 2,
Modus Vivendi, Armenian-Russian (Slavonic) University,
Artsakh State University,
"Geghama", Gavar University,
"Lex Dominus", French University of Armenia

 

The oral stage of the competition will be held on September 22 and 23. The semi-final will take place on September 22 and the jury, which will include representatives of the RA Court of Cassation, General Prosecutor's Office, Chamber of Advocates of Armenia and the Chamber of Advocates of Germany, will announce the best.

 

As in previous year's competition, this year also the teams will receive certificates and awards, which are defined both by the German Foundation for International Legal Cooperation (IRZ), YSU, RA Human Rights Defender, RA Chamber of Advocates, RA Union of Judges, RA Bar Association, RA Prosecutor General's Office.

On August 22, Karen Ghambaryan, Doctor of the Chair of Semiconductor Physics and Microelectronics, was awarded a Gold Medal for his outstanding contribution to the study of nanotechnology, nanoelectronics and semiconductor material science by the International Association of Advanced Materials in Stockholm. This year, 24 researchers were awarded gold medals.

 

“It has been a long time since I cooperate with the International Association of Advanced Materials. I was not even aware that my work had been studied and that was highly appreciated. Undoubtedly, it is very pleasant. I am also proud that I have been able to once again voice the name of Armenia and YSU in the international academic environment, which has not been done so far,” - says Karen Ghambaryan.

 

The professor added that the annual award ceremony was held in Stockholm on August 21-25 as part of the summit of the European Advanced Materials Congress, where he had made a report and chaired one of the sections.

 

It should be noted that about 50.000 scientists from 146 countries are the members of this association. Armenia is represented here by Karen Ghambaryan.

The international symposium on “Symmetry Methods in Physics”, organized by YSU International Center for Perspective Research and Joint Institute for Nuclear Research, was launched on July 9 and was summarized today.

 

The conference, which is held once every two years, was established in 1993 at the University of Dubna. Over the years, it has been held in addition to Dubna also in the Czech Republic, and in recent years the conference has “settled down” in Armenia. Scientists from the United States, Mexico, France, Italy, Great Britain, Germany, Russia, Poland, Czech Republic, Slovakia, Romania, Belarus and other countries have arrived in Yerevan to participate in the 17th International Conference.

 

“This year we decided to hold a conference with one section so that everyone could attend it. We have different duration reports. Importantly, Armenian specialists are also involved. People here find associates, colleagues working on the same topics, and there are scientific contacts that turn into practical cooperation,” - says Georgi Poghosyan, Director of the International Center for Perspective Research at Yerevan State University.

 

 

Professor of the Center for Physical Sciences at the National University of Mexico, Court Bernardo Wolf, has rich experience in cooperating with the Armenian scientists. He has begun to work with them since the Soviet era: “At the moment we have joint work with Mr. Poghosyan. Of course, it is quite difficult today to write an article on theoretical physics to draw attention on it, but we have directions where there is much to study.”

 

Sergei Vinitski, a researcher from Dubna Bogomolov Laboratory of Theoretical Physics, also works with Armenian physicists for a long time and is a permanent participant of this conference and has recently been awarded the title of Honorary Professor at the Russian-Armenian (Slavonic) University.

 

“This is a very good platform to see with the latest research results in different scientific centers and find partners. Nearly 10 years ago I got acquainted with Hayk Sarsikyan and Hayk Ghazaryan and we are still working together on quantum dental research in nanotechnology. At this conference we have presented the latest results,” - says Mr. Vinitski.

 

It should be noted that starting with 2011, a summer school is also being adjunct to the conference with students from Armenia and different countries, and some of the lecturers are the participants of the conference. This year the Summer School will start in Tsaghkadzor on July 16.
