Petropavlovsk on Kamchatka

September 8-13,  2014



The history of these meetings  on Information Technologies in the Earth Sciences (ITES) dates back to 2008 (Magadan) and 2010 (Vladivostok) when scientists of the Far East Branch of the Russian Academy of Sciences hosted two All-Russia national conferences in a row on the ITES advances.
