RUSSIAN SPEAKING CLUB of TSU opens the sixth season!

We help our international students learn Russian, expand their circle of friends, and adapt to life in Tomsk.

We invite students who are ready to communicate with foreigners to become volunteers of the Club!
If you want to join, write to the head - Anna Shevchik

The organizational meeting will take place at Zoom on September 16, 2020, at 19.00.

The Quantorium Technology Park of Tomsk Region is happy to invite foreign students and professors to participate as speakers at the festival «Rukami».

Festival of ideas and technologies «Rukami», which will be held on September 17-20, 2020, will present an international platform, where students and educational organizations from all over the world will share experiences. As the festival’s main theme is maker culture, the topics of the performances should concern modern technologies and inventions. Speakers can introduce their projects or researches, make an interactive lecture, tell about international projects that teenagers may participate in. Moreover, there is an opportunity to hold a masterclass at the festival. Working language of the festival is English.

All of the above is going to be online, so all you need to take part in the event is a device with a camera and mic, and the ability to go online. Contact me if you are interested or have any questions. @club132922278

This Saturday at 10.45 am we are going to make the territory of Mavlyukeevskoye Lake and the embankment of the Tom River near the "Parus" better. We want to throw all the garbage!

We have the Inventory (gloves and bags).
Come with a rake if you have one. Come with tea, if you have one. Come with children if you have them (just kidding).

Due to the current situation in the world, for the sake of safety, we ask you to take masks with you and be ready to restrain yourself from hugging.

So: August, 15
Parus (lane Buyanovskiy, 3a)
10.45
Come and take your friends with you.

TSU has good results in the ShanghaiRanking 2020
ShanghaiRanking has released the ShanghaiRanking's Global Ranking of Academic Subjects 2020. This is one of the most respected rankings in the world. In the Russian segment, TSU has taken a leading position in Earth Sciences (1st-4th place), Metallurgy (3rd place), and Physics (6th place).   In the world segment of the ranking, TSU is in the group 101-150 in metallurgy, and this is the result of many years of work by the university in this area. In the near future, TSU will update the instrument base and some of the new equipment will be purchased at the request of metallurgical scientists.   Ilya Zhukov’s team works in this area, creating light alloys based on aluminum and magnesium; Manzur Ziyatdinov’s group is engaged in high-nitrogen steels; and Vladimir Promakhov is engaged in additive technologies. Research in metallophysics is being carried out by the scientific groups of Professor Victor Gunther and Professor Yuri Chumlyakov.   In the ShanghaiRanking 2020 for academic subjects, TSU showed its traditionally good results in Physics, entering the group 401-500. This is also the result of many years of successful work in world-class projects. TSU staff participates in several experiments at the Large Hadron Collider - ATLAS, TOTEM, and CMS in CERN.   The university is also in the group 401-500 in the Earth Sciences, thanks to research on climate change and the search for new deposits of valuable minerals, non-ferrous and noble metals, coal, and hydrocarbons.

International students run TSU social networks in 5 languages
The University is now giving international students and applicants the opportunity to learn more about the life of TSU and Tomsk, with pages on Instagram and Facebook in Turkish, Indonesian, Arabic, French, and English for the Indian audience.   The idea of international students having pages on social networks in their native languages came up a long time ago, but there was no understanding of how to promote this activity, explains Natalya Zhadovets, head of the Department of Recruiting and Documentation Support of the TSU International Relations Department. Due to the spread of coronavirus and the announcement of the self-isolation regime, many international students found themselves in a difficult financial situation and became interested in the possibility of part-time work, and here the idea of social networks came to be, thanks to the student labor exchange UniProfi.   - Most students were enthusiastic about this type of activity - talking about their university, about their own experience of studying at it, and about Tomsk and local traditions. The pages were created in May, and through them there are already potential applicants who are interested in the conditions for admission, - said Natalya Zhadovets.     The content of the pages is invented by the students themselves. The most popular pages right now are in Indonesian and Arabic. There are already more than 50 and more than 270 subscribers, respectively.   - The plans are still for shooting videos about the life of students in isolation and not in it. So far, we are only at the beginning of the road, but we will gradually develop, - Natalya Zhadovets added.   TSU Instagram page in Arabic   TSU Instagram page in Indonesian   TSU Instagram page in French   TSU Instagram page in Turkish   TSU Instagram for indians   For over 5 years, Tomsk State University has been maintaining official websites and social media pages in English and Chinese, and graduate students at TSU from China have been supporting sites and pages in Chinese.

TSU researcher will help CERN to “lighten” the data warehouse system
Yury Bordulev, a researcher at the High Energy Physics Data Analysis Laboratory, Faculty of Physics, has received a grant from the ATLAS international collaboration to develop new data storage algorithms. In using these algorithms, it will be necessary to reduce the amount of stored data while storing information. The grant will allow the TSU physicist to undergo a six-month internship at the European Organization for Nuclear Research (CERN).   ATLAS is one of the Large Hadron Collider particle detectors. This is one of the largest scientific facilities in the world, consisting of many interconnected systems and services. The ATLAS detector is served by approximately 3,000 scientists and engineers from 181 organizations, including TSU. During operation, ATLAS generates an unprecedentedly large data stream - tens of petabytes per year. These data are stored for subsequent analysis by physicists.   - The problem is that CERN data warehouses are already operating at the limit, and with the start of a new experiment in 2021, existing capacities will not be enough. In this regard, the task was set: to reduce the amount of stored data while saving information. In today's algorithm, a fairly large portion of the memory is spent on the storage system infrastructure. It is this part that needs to be “facilitated”. To do this, we need to develop a new algorithm for storing data, apply it to all the data that was collected for 2018, implement this algorithm in the ATLAS system, and adapt it to all the services that access the storage, -Yury Bordulev explained.     In early 2020, a TSU group completed a large project to test readout electronics as part of the modernization of the ATLAS muon detector.   - The ATLAS collaboration grant competition was a great opportunity for me and our group to join in solving new large-scale problems,- adds Yury Bordulev. - One of the results of the project should be the emergence in Tomsk of a team responsible for the development of ATLAS data storage system.
