Promoting books. We also display books during the conference, and organize their ranking on the basis of the opinions of professionals and experts. The books that get the highest ranking will be awarded diplomas, will be mentioned at the closing ceremony, and will be mentioned in the press release that we give to many journals and mass media. All books received will be mentioned in the volume of 'Ecological Studies, Hazards, Solutions', some of them with comments highlighting their value.

Please send books to be displayed to: Dr. S. A. Ostroumov, Department of Hydrobiology, Faculty of Biology, Moscow State University, Moscow 119992, Russia. For technical reasons the books will not be returned. The conference covers not only science but also educational and eco-ethical issues as well as technological innovations. Textbooks that deal with eco-ethics or applied and technological issues are within the scope of the conference and the exhibition.

A number of awards and honorary titles will be announced at the conference. Please nominate candidates for the honorary title ‘Aquatic Ecologist of the Year’.
