June 23-26, 2018. Director of GC RAS Academician A. D. Gvishiani and Deputy Director for Science Corresponding Member of RAS A. A. Soloviev participated in the 32nd Conference on Mathematical Geophysics (CMG) of the International Union of Geodesy and Geophysics (IUGG).

The conference takes place every two years, and in 2018 the place of the meeting was the motor ship "Nizhny Novgorod" (Figure 1), which cruised along the river Volga from Nizhny Novgorod to Kalyazin and back. The organizer was the Federal Research Center of the Institute of Applied Physics of RAS (Nizhny Novgorod).

Academician A. D. Gvishiani delivered a plenary report "Significant, strong and strongest earthquake-prone areas recognition: systems analysis aspects" and a presentation "INTERMAGNET for directional drilling in the polar region". Corresponding member of RAS A. A. Soloviev (Figure 3) made an invited presentation titled "Mathematical tools for analysis of ground-based and satellite geomagnetic data streams for advanced monitoring of the Earth's magnetic field".

The CMG conference is traditionally aimed at the exchange of ideas and information in all areas of geophysics with an emphasis on the application of mathematics, statistics and computer sciences to geophysical tasks. CMG promotes the development and application of mathematical methods and relevant theoretical approaches to solving problems of the entire spectrum of geophysical disciplines.

July 11, 2018. Corresponding member of the Russian Academy of Sciences, V. A. Petrov, head of the Geoinformatics Laboratory of IGEM RAS, visited GC RAS. The purpose of the visit was to participate in a working meeting in which A. Gvishiani, Director of the Geophysical Center, A. Soloviev, Deputy Director for Science, A. Rybkina, Deputy Director for Development, and researcher A. Odintsova participated.

July 6-10, 2018. Scientists of the Laboratory of Geoinformatics and Geomagnetic Studies D. V. Peregudov and M. N. Dobrovolsky took part in the joint event – the 26th Extended European Cosmic Ray Symposium and 35th Russian Cosmic Ray Conference. The event was held at the Altai State University (Barnaul, Russia).

July 2-4, 2018. Leading engineer of the Laboratory of Geoinformatics and Geomagnetic Studies of GC RAS A. Grudnev visited "Klimovskaya" observatory (Arkhangelsk region, Klimovskaya village). The main goal of the expedition is to carry out routine preventive works aimed at maintaining the working capacity of geomagnetic equipment, including a scalar magnetometer.

July 4, 2018. Two international scientific organizations - the International Council for Science (ICSU) and the International Social Science Council (ISSC) have united in a new union - the International Science Council (ISC). GC RAS represents the interests of Russia in the International Union of Geodesy and Geophysics (IUGG), now part of the ISC. IUGG General Secretary Alik T. Ismail-Zade was elected as the chief secretary of the newly formed Council.
