12 Conferences organised Modern problems of solar-terrestrial influences (national conference, annually held), Physics and Agriculture (co-organizer, annually held) COSPAR Colloquium "Plasma Processes In The Near-earth Space: Interball And Beyond" SOFIA, Bulgaria, 5-10 February, 2002 Supported by: European Commission, Research DG, High-Level Scientific Conferences; United Nations, Office for Outer Space Affairs.

13 Main features Development and calibration of active dosemeters for cosmic radiation measurements. Radiation investigations in manned and unmanned space missions. Data processing and analyses. Study the dynamic nature of the Earth radiation environment, including slow variations over long time periods, as well as rapid changes, induced by solar proton events or disturbed geomagnetic conditions.
