Requirements for Abstracts submitted electronically
Automatic layout system is used to submit abstracts to most Sessions except for: Chemistry, Innovative Economics and Econometrics, Soil Science, Physics, Philology, Fundamental Materials Science and Nanomaterials, History of Ancient Civilizations subsession of History and History of Art Session, Expeditionary research sub-sessions of Geography Session. To submit your Abstract to the Sessions mentioned above you should use Word-file upload while following some additional requirements for the Computational Mathematics and Cybernetics Session is needed.
- Into the abstract submission window you add only the text of the abstract. You should not add any extra information, s.a. the session title, the sub-session title, scientific research topic, name, last name, patronymic, institution and e-mail address since this information is already presented above the abstract submission window (it is automatically generated from the application you submitted to participate in the Conference).
- The length of an abstract is 2 pages for humanitarian sessions (up to 6,500 printed characters including spaces and bibliography), and 1 page for natural sciences sessions (up to 3000 printed characters including spaces and bibliography).
- To submit abstracts containing mathematical formulas you will need to use TeX digital typesetting system. In that case tick "I use TeX" which will make the system recognize specific TeX symbols and commands.
- References are presented in alphabetical order according to the author's last name, with Russian-language sources listed first, followed by English (and other)-language sources and then websites. Each source in the body of the abstract should be referenced as , [n1, n2, ...], where n1, n2 stand for the matching numbers of the sources in the reference list.
Here you can see some particular reference examples.
Attention: When you upload your abstract through the automatic layout system do not number the sources in the reference list, the lines will be numbered automatically after saving the abstract. Press ENTER to switch to the next line of the list.
- Notes and citations are made using Harvard referencing style guide: the last name of the cited author (or the last name of the first author, if there are several authors), the year of publication and the page are given in parentheses in-text, while in the reference list (bibliography) at the end of the abstract all sources and publications are listed in alphabetical order. Archival materials are cited by the last name of the author or the beginning of the title in-text while in the reference list all the authors and full titles of the documents are provided with all the necessary information about the housing organization (repository, library, historical society etc.). Archaeological and ethnological findings are cited from their publications. Internet publications are described in accordance with the “GOST” standards and cited according to the general rules (Last name, Page title, Website name).

Determinants of the internal migration of the population in modern Russia
Ivanov Ivan Andreevich
Lomonosov Moscow State University,
Faculty of Economics, Moscow, Russia
In modern Russia, the level of internal migration flow of the population is extremely low. So, if the average US resident changes his residence approximately 13 times during his/her lifetime, the average Russian citizen does so slightly more than 1.5 times [2, 3]. Unlike economically developed countries, in which internal migration acts as the main mechanism for the redistribution of the population between the regions of the country in response to changes in political, socio-economic, demographic and other living conditions in these countries, in Russia at the moment internal migration is not an important factor of equalization of the interregional differentiation of levels of social and economic development.
The research showed that increasing the migration flow of the population between the regions of the country is an important prerequisite for smoothing the interregional differentiation of levels of social and economic development in modern Russia and ensuring sustainable economic development of the country in the short term.

For example, in an abstract, two scientific works by Ivanov are used published in 2000 and 2002. The first reference would be: [Ivanov 2000: 51]; the second one - [Ivanov 2002: 151]. If one scientific work by Petrov is used, the link looks like this: [Petrov: 50]. Other possible references: [Petrov, Ivanov: 67-68], [Ibid: 69].
- The sources used in the abstract (no more than 5) are listed at the end of the text as References/ Bibliography. You must only list the sources directly cited in the abstract. Do not list any extra materials read and studied to prepare for your research. Example to be followed:
