The Ministry of Youth Affairs of the Republic of Tatarstan (Russian Federation) and the Islamic Cooperation Youth Forum (ICYF) is organizing the OIC Youth Scientific Congress in partnership with the Academy of Youth Diplomacy, Academy of Creative Youth of the Republic of Tatarstan, Tatarstan Republican Youth Public Foundation “SELET” and Kazan Federal University.
The Congress aims to create an international cooperation platform for the formation of prerequisites for the sustainable development of international cooperation in the scientific field with the OIC region
This program intends to achieve the following objectives:
1. Establishment of a unified scientific platform for interaction of young scientists of the OIC the Member States within the framework of international scientific cooperation;
2. Developing deeper scientific awareness and understanding of Sustainable Development Goals, especially those related to the role of youth in science, technology and innovation like SDG 4 Quality Education and SDG 17 Strengthen the means of implementation and revitalize the Global Partnership for Sustainable Development.
3. Publication of the OIC Youth Scientific Congress Proceedings with participants’ theses.

THE FORMAT AND METHODOLOGY
The Congress is designed for 5 days (21-25) November 2022, and consists of an opening ceremony, paper presentation, panels discussions, roundtable discussions, and interactive workshops. The opening of the Congress will begin with a plenary session, after which a round table on the topic “Support for young scientists of the OIC countries” will be organized.
The purpose of these round tables is to provide participants with the opportunity to discuss scientific research in areas such as urban studies, modern technologies in education, oil and gas technologies, and modern research in the field of medicine, share their own experiences, and encourage them to further cooperate in the scientific, technical and innovative development of science on specific topics.
MAIN AGENDA OF THE CONGRESS
Expansion of scientific cooperation between Russia and the OIC region. The Congress will focus on the following subtopics;
1. Urban studies;
2. Modern technologies in education;
3. Petroleum Engineering Technologies;
4. Current Research in Medicine.
By 2030, there will be 41 metropolises with 720 million people in the world. And by 2025, 600 cities will provide more than 60% of global GDP growth. If large cities are becoming increasingly attractive to our planet’s inhabitants, questions are being raised about the comfort and convenience of urban spaces, their sustainability, carbon footprint reduction, and social inclusiveness. The section will discuss the results of interdisciplinary research on urban spaces emerging and developing in different parts of our planet. Experts in the fields of architecture, sociology, economics, ecology, and others interested in the development of contemporary urban spaces are invited.
2.Modern Technologies in Education
The section will cover a wide range of issues related to the educational process at school and the training of future teachers and psychologists. In particular, it will address the digitalization of the educational process, migration pedagogy, conflict mediation, and gadget addiction of students. Research results in the field of tutoring will be presented, as well as technologies for developing functional literacy and critical thinking among students, motivation, and digital and research competencies of education personnel.
3.Petroleum Engineering Technologies
In the context of the global energy crisis and regional and national energy sustainability issues, it is becoming more important to develop deposits of hydrocarbons with hard-to-recover reserves. High-viscosity hydrocarbons, shale oil and gas fields, low-porosity reservoirs, and fields with a complex geological structure require special approaches to geological prospecting and exploration, as well as the application of new development technologies. The development of import-substituting technologies, reagents, and equipment aimed at solving the production of hydrocarbons from such reserves is also becoming a very topical issue. The section will provide a forum for discussion, exchange of views, and presentation of solutions in the field of hard-to-recover hydrocarbons, as well as discussion of future joint projects.
4.Current Research in Medicine
The focus will be on genetic and cellular technologies in biomedicine, as well as new approaches to preventing and overcoming the development and spread of antibiotic resistance. Specifically, current trends in the development of medicines and treatments based on gene and cell therapy approach to the cultivation of native and genetically modified cells for tissue engineering, promising methods for disease diagnosis and personalized drug selection, and the development of new antimicrobial agents and therapeutic approaches.
The Host Country will cover travel, accommodation, and other costs.
Application Deadline: 1 October 2022, 23:59 CET
Full attended participants will be awarded a certificate issued by the Kazan OIC Youth Capital 2022 Organising Committee.
