Victor V. Kurlov, Associate Professor at the Department of Innovation and Integrated Quality Systems at St. Petersburg State University of Aerospace Instrumentation, PhD in Engineering, Russia:

– I am a representative of St. Petersburg State University of Aerospace Instrumentation. It was a great pleasure to accept the invitation of the Faculty of Information Technologies at PSU to take part in the conference connected with Information and Communication Technologies, especially with the Innovations that are actively represented here. We have already been communicating with the Faculty of Information Technologies more than 5 years; they respond to our invitations and come to us with pleasure too. In my opinion, this style of communication, sometimes even informal – during the coffee breaks – makes it possible to unite people interested in solving certain scientific problems and develop effective, even optimal, ways of solving these problems and issues.

Mikhail L. Kheifets, Deputy Academician-Secretary at the Department of Physical Engineering Sciences of the National Academy of Sciences of Belarus, Doctor of Science in Engineering:

– To begin with, I would like to notice that the Faculty of Information Technologies celebrates its 10th anniversary together with PSU 50th anniversary, and I realize that this is the youngest and most rapidly developing faculty. I am no longer a permanent employee at PSU, but I don’t interrupt communication: I manage the branch of the department at the neighbouring faculty and maintain close relations with the Faculty of Information Technologies. Why do we maintain these relations? The main reason for this is your students who later become our master’s students. It’s amazing that you cooperate with both the National Academy of Sciences and industry and your graduates can do both scientific and production activities. The level of personnel training in Polotsk is very high and, without any doubt, competitive outside the Republic. It is especially pleasant that the 1st Conference on Information and Communication Technologies has become a part of both PSU and the Faculty anniversaries. I would like to note that this is the 1st experience, and we still have perspectives for growth. But the most important thing is that the representatives of academic, theoretical and industrial sciences gather together within the walls of the oldest educational institution and they are looking for the ways of further joint work for the good of our country, because today we are creating Belarus as an intellectual country.

Boris B. Khina, Chief Researcher of the Laboratory of Thin Film Physics at the Physical-Technical Institute of the “National Academy of Sciences of Belarus, Doctor of Physical and Mathematical Sciences”, Doctor of Sciences in Physics and Mathematics, Belarus:

– I am happy to share my impressions of the Conference. I really enjoyed it. To start with, the format of the Conference was unusual and interesting: the cultural program and the acquaintance with the University were on the first day, and the meetings and talks began only on the second day. I like the fact that Polotsk State University, probably, is the only university in Belarus, which has such a long history and deep-rooted traditions. BNTU was founded in 1920 and the 95th anniversary was celebrated a while ago, and Polotsk State University began its history as a Jesuit College in 1581. One can argue about the date, of course, history is not a precise science, but the fact that the University keeps up the traditions is very important in two respects. Firstly, it is the lecturers’ authority strengthening in the eyes of students. Secondly, it is the university authority strengthening in the eyes of official bodies. I have very positive impression of the Faculty of Information Technologies. It’s good that such a wide range of research, related to the development of both information technologies and its connection with the tasks which appear in science and technology, is carried out at the Faculty. And, in particular, I would say: nowadays information technologies are an essential part of human life.
