The 8th Scientific and Engineering Conference
with International Participation
"Supercritical Fluids: Fundamentals, Technologies, Innovations"

14 19 September 2015
Zelenogradsk, Kaliningrad region, Russian Federation


Zelenogradsk is a town and the administrative center of Zelenogradsky District of Kaliningrad Region, Russia, located 30 kilometers (19 miles) north of Kaliningrad on the Sambian coastline near the Curonian Spit on the Baltic Sea. The site of today's Zelenogradsk was originally an Old Prussian fishing village. The area was controlled by the Teutonic Knights and settled with Germans. The German name Cranz, originally Cranzkuhren, derives from the Old Prussian word krantas, meaning "the coast". For most of its history it remained a small village in East Prussia.

During the 19th century, the village became the primary seaside resort for the Kingdom of Prussia on the East Prussian. From 18161895 it was known as das k?nigliche Bad, or "the royal bath/resort". Despite the increase of tourists, the fishing industry remained strong; smoked flounder was a regional delicacy. The area was overrun by the Soviet Red Army during World War II and annexed to Russia, although it suffered minimally through warfare. The German population fled during the evacuation of East Prussia or was subsequently expelled by force. The village, renamed from Cranz to Zelenogradsk or "Green City" in Russian, received a civic charter after 1945. The tourism industry was neglected during the Cold War and Zelenogradsk's tourism primacy was relinquished to nearby Svetlogorsk (formerly Rauschen). This policy changed in recent years. Zelenogradsk is becoming more popular with Russian vacationers, and many rich Muscovites own private houses in the area.

Kaliningrad region has a maritime climate and therefore damp, variable and mild. Autumn comes in September and is at first warm and usually sunny, turning cold, damp and foggy in November. The daily mean temperature is 13-150C, and half of days are rainy.

The Conference will take place in the Conference Hall of tourist complex SAMBIA, Zelenogradsk, Kaliningrad Region (
