April 21, 2016. Dmitry V. Panteleev delivered a report "Development of the user interface for the publication of geophysical information about the Earth's magnetic field, accumulated in the World Data Center for Solar-Terrestrial Physics" at a seminar of Laboratory 1.1, which took place at the Geophysical Center RAS.

The report formulated the purpose and problems faced by the developer, briefly spoke about the Earth's magnetic field and about the details of the variations of the geomagnetic field, gathered at the World Data Center for Solar-Terrestrial Physics from 1957 to the present time, the importance of these data and where they are used.

Then the reporter presented a web page with the request form for a user accessing a database of geomagnetic data, containing an interactive and customizable vector map, described the structure of a relational database based on MySQL and demonstrated the work of user interface by reference to the test database, which includes data on the minute values of the elements of the geomagnetic field. He also spoke about a possibility of acquiring and retaining the output file with selected data from the database in three different formats - wdcb, csv and IAGA2002.

In conclusion, the speaker listed the work planned for the near time - the program code optimization, adding a check for incorrect data entered by a user, and the future challenges — a program for the development of average annual values of the geomagnetic field and data on the K index, the program translated into English.

September 11, 2017. Director of GC RAS Academician Alexey Gvishiani was elected a member of the European Academy ("Academia Europaea") in the section EARTH & COSMIC SCIENCES.

September 6, 2017. A press conference was held at the Central House of Journalists at a regular meeting in the frame of "Scientific Wednesdays" with the presentation "System Analysis of Earth Data for Reducing Natural and Technogenic Disasters" by Director of the Geophysical Center of the Russian Academy of Sciences Academician Alexey Dzhermenovich Gvishiani. The head of GC RAS spoke about the work of the institute, importance of geomagnetic studies and their practical application, international cooperation with foreign research institutes and forthcoming elections at the Russian Academy of Sciences. During the meeting, the GC RAS scientists presented a digital innovative spherical screen. At the end of the presentation, Director of GC RAS gave an interview to the journalists.

August 23, 2017. Corresponding Member of the Russian Academy of Sciences and Deputy Director for Science of the Geophysical Center A. Soloviev was appointed Delegate of RAS to the International Association of Geomagnetism and Aeronomy (IAGA), replacing Director of the Geophysical Center Academician A. Gvishiani. At the same time, A. Gvishiani remains the national representative in the International Union of Geodesy and Geophysics (IUGG), which includes IAGA.

July 3, 2017. School of Young Scientists "Methods for the integrated assessment of seismic hazard" has opened at the Shmidt Institute of Physics of the Earth (IPE RAS). The School was organized by GC RAS within the framework of the Russian Science Foundation (RNF) project No. 15-17-30020 "Application of system analysis for seismic hazard assessment in Russian regions".
