6 - 8 November, 2017, RUDN University, Brno Technological University (Czech) and Tampere Technological University (Finland) held the IX International Congress on Ultra Modern Telecommunications and Control System, ICUMT (http://www.icumt.info/2017/).
The Congress is traditionally held with the support of IEEE (Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers), the materials being published in a collection of articles indexed in Web of Science, Scopus and IEEE Xplore.
The meetings were held in the frame of two main tracks – telecommunications and control as well as workshops. One of them - the International Workshop on Applied Problems in Theory of Probabilities and Mathematical Statistics, APTP+MS, has long been held by RUDN and the RAS Federal Research Center «Informatics and Control».
RUDN delegation comprising 15 people delivered 18 reports reflecting results of research projects («Advanced research of 5G wireless IoT nets» supervised by K.Samuilov, «Elaboration of mathematic models and their analysis methods for IoT infrastructure functioning quality assessment» supervised by Y.Orlov and Y.Gaidamak, «Computer modeling and computational-analytical methods of research of complex physical and technical systems and info-communicational technologies» supervised by A.Kryanev and L.Sevastianov) and presented results of research of the Center for modeling hi-tech systems and info-communications.
In 2017, the Congress is organized in the frame of 5-100 Project.
We invite you to participate in ICUMT in October 2018, at RUDN University!
RUDN soil scientists have revealed a direct correlation between the rate of soil formation of carbon dioxide, called CO2 emissions, and the content of microbial biomass in it. It is known that CO2 emission from soil is mainly conditioned by respiration of soil microorganisms and plant roots. The more CO2 soil emits, the more microbial biomass it usually contains. It was shown that CO2 emission by chernozem of different ecosystems (or different types of land use) correlates with the content of microbial biomass, and most closely with the rate of its microbial respiration. And the soil with good microbial properties has the “best quality”, is more fertile, provides the highest yield of crops and other plant biomass.
A RUDN chemist has synthesized a catalyst for the production of gamma-valerolactone — an energy-intensive “green” biofuel. The catalyst based on zirconium dioxide and zeolite has shown high efficiency in converting the waste of wood plant materials — methyl levulinate — to gamma-valerolactone.
Biochemists from RUDN University determined which substances in peach leaves provide the antioxidant effect their extract has. They investigated the composition of the powders obtained from leaves of several varieties of peach and found that high polyphenol content correlates with antioxidant properties. The results will help start production of antioxidants from natural sources.
