On June 8-10, 2016, the International school-conference for young scientists and specialists "Modern problems of physics" takes place in the B. I. Stepanov Institute of Physics of the NAS of Belarus. Opening the event Director of the B. I. Stepanov Institute of Physics of the NAS of Belarus, Academician Nikolay S. Kazak noted the wide geography of conference participants — in addition to representatives of scientific and educational institutions of Belarus, the program claimed participants from universities of St. Petersburg, Saratov, and Voronezh — only about 60 reports.
Academician-Secretary of the NASB Department of Physics, Mathematics and Informatics Valentin A. Orlovich noted the high quality of the edition of conference materials, thanked for the work the conference program committee, which consists almost entirely of young specialists.
A feature of this conference is that each meeting opens with presentations from invited lecturers who have recently defended candidate and doctoral thesis, and have already managed to achieve good results in their field.
Presented at the conference reports cover a wide range of modern intensively developing branches of physics: theoretical physics and the physics of fundamental interactions; optical devices, materials and technologies; physics of nanostructures; laser physics and spectroscopy; plasma physics; lasers in biology and medicine; physics of polymers and organic compounds; physical and non-linear optics.
