Presentation title: Models and Methods of Analysis of Self – Similar Network Traffic
Abstract: The active development of information technology and the expansion of information services is largely based on scientific and technological developments in the field of telecommunications networks. Research shows that modern network technologies are growing ahead of theoretical and analytical understanding of network interactions. An important feature of information traffic is that it belongs to self-similar stochastic processes. For self-similar traffic, the methods of calculating the characteristics of the computer network (channel bandwidth, buffer capacity, etc.), based on classical models, do not meet the necessary requirements and do not allow for adequately assessing the load on the network.

Presentation title: Ukrainian harvest 2022 and global food security
Abstract: Even before the start of Russia's war against Ukraine, food prices rose significantly. Military action on the territory of Ukraine causes a significant increase in world food prices. Russia's aggression against Ukraine threatens food and humanitarian security in many countries around the world. Due to the invasion of Ukraine by Russian troops, Russia could cause humanitarian food crises and danger in some countries around the world. Ukraine is among the TOP-5 world food exporters, so in less than a month the whole world will feel the effects of the war in Ukraine. According to the US Department of Agriculture, Ukraine accounts for 16% of world corn exports (with 30% of corn imports to China coming from Ukraine), 12% of wheat exports, 50% of sunflower oil exports.

CV: My name is Anastasiia Mikhieieva. I am a teacher and PhD student of the Philology Department at Petro Mohyla Black Sea National University in Mykolaiv, Ukraine. The topic of my dissertation is "Trauma and Temporality in Women's Holocaust literature of the First Generation". My scientific interests include: the impact of the Holocaust on the formation of identity and the category of time in literaure. Moreover' I am involved in other scientific projects connected to Holocaust history, memoralization and post-traumatic disorders caused by military conflicts.
Abstract: The research is based on a study of short stories collections by Israeli writer Ida Fink’s, All the Stories, and French writer Charlotte Delbo’s, Auschwitz and After, to reflect the impact of the Holocaust on autobiographical elements in their work. The authors are representatives of the first generation of Holocaust survivors, which means that the genocide of Jews during World War II was a personal traumatic experience for them. Since autobiography has been considered a documentary genre with its own peculiarities, works on the Holocaust were seen as historical evidence of this event. Under the influence of trauma, the genre of autobiography can be modified in the literary text in such a way that the line between autobiography and fiction is blurred. Ida Fink and Charlotte Delbo write short stories with fictional narrators, but all the situations are certainly the experience of the writers themselves, who turn to the autofiction and conventions of F. Lejeune's "autobiographical pact". The aim of the study is to definethe peculiarities of the autobiographical genre, analyze its functions in the Holocaust literature and identify poetic elements of autobiography.

Presentation title: Modelling mechanical exciting in foam polymers based Cosserat elasticity
Abstract: The current state of creation and production of new materials, such as auxetics, intelligent materials and others with unusual properties, opens broad prospects for their use in various fields, in particular in medicine and engineering. However, the use of such materials requires careful justification and prediction of their mechanical behaviour under the impact of force, temperature and other influences. To describe the mechanical behaviour of new porous materials, refined models of continuous mechanics, such as Cosserat elasticity, which take into account the influence of shear-rotational deformations, are used.

Presentation title: The Monarchist Counter-Revolution in Central and Eastern Europe: Definition, Geographical Frame, Chronology
Abstract: It is widely known that Central and Eastern Europe is a specific historical region marked by the outbreak of two World Wars and the spread of Bolshevism. At the same time, another historical phenomenon, such as monarchist counter-revolution, also has its origins in Central and Eastern Europe but is still little-studied or sometimes neglected by scholars. The monarchist counter-revolution was a sui generis response to Bolshevism in some newly independent states which emerged on the territory of the former Russian Empire and Austria-Hungary, for instance, the Kingdom of Finland, the Ukrainian State, the Almighty Don Host, the Baltic Grand Duchy, the Kingdom of Hungary. Thus, this research is geographically limited to the territory of the European part of the former Russian Empire (Finland, the Baltic States, Ukraine, Don) and Hungary. It is hardly possible to create the ultimate periodization of the monarchist counter-revolution in Central and Eastern Europe because each case took place at a different time and had distinctive features. Nevertheless, in general, the process started on the state periphery as a reaction to Bolshevism and was usually accompanied by foreign intervention and finished the restoration of the pre-revolutionary order abolishing not only the Bolshevik legislation but also the revolutionary changes as a whole.

Presentation title: Metasurfaces for communications, sensing and energy
Abstract: Metasurfaces are two-dimensional periodic subwavelength nanostructures enabling to engineer light properties on demand. In this talk, we will discuss the main principles of metasurfaces and discover several related applications.
1. Metasurfaces for planar technologies. We show the extraordinary properties of metasurfaces allowing to control the in-plane highly localized optical signal paving a way towards the integrated circuits, on-chip devices and planar optical networks.
2. Metasurfaces for fiber optics. We demonstrate the enhancement of the light collection into fiber by several orders of magnitude via the fiber tip nanostructuring. Remote light collection is highly important for a plethora of applications including spectroscopy, endoscopy, biosensing, and quantum communications.
3. Metasurfaces for solar energy. One of the most significant factors responsible for optical losses in solar cells is the reflection of the light from their surface, whereas almost half of energy could be wasted. We propose the metasurface-based antireflective coatings boosting the capabilities of solar cells via the efficient broadband reflection suppression outperforming the existing counterparts.

Presentation title: Change of the young generation values during the war in Ukraine
Abstract: The war in Ukraine has changed the lives of all inhabitants. Many of the Ukrainians were forced to leave their houses and move abroad or to another Ukrainian region. In addition to changing Ukrainian inhabitants location, the war also changed their goals in the life. One way of evaluating life goals and their achievement is value analysis.
The purpose of this study is identification of changes in the structure of values of the Ukrainian young generation (generation Y) in Kharkiv region because of the war in Ukraine. The value structures of the same generation were compared for three periods (2016, pandemic period 2020-2021 and April-May 2022).
As a result, it was confirmed that the war significantly changed the life position and life goals of the Ukrainian generation Y, while because of the covid-19, the structure of terminal values practically unchanged. The ways of life goals achieving (the structure of instrumental values) have changed both under the impact of the pandemic and the war in Ukraine.

Presentation title: Legal challenges and war reality, Ukrainians should not mislead themselves
Abstract: Because of the terrible situation that Ukrainians are in, I mean a terrible war started by an international aggressor Russian Federation, the emotional state of Ukrainians may lead to irrational views. Because of that, the Ukrainian Nation has the real risk of accepting autocracy instead democracy. 58% of Ukrainians said that the most important thing for Ukraine now is a strong leader, but only 14% are supporters of the democratic system. There is a discussion in our society about such limitations as a ban for almost all men from 18 to 60 can't cross a national border to leave Ukraine. And despite such governmental actions violating the Constitution, many Ukrainian people support it. Ukraine has a really challenging situation in all spheres, and we face the real risk of losing part of our sovereignty. That is why the whole nation should be consolidated. But, In the author’s opinion, any economic, political, or other situation, or even war, can't cancel law and democratic principles of government. That is why Ukrainians should not mislead themselves that a strong leader is better than democracy, as they believe now.

CV: My name is Ruslan Zaporozhchenko. I am a PhD student of the Department of Political Science at Karazin University (Kharkiv, Ukraine). The topic of my dissertation research is "Political Forms of Space Organization in the Context of Modern Globalization Processes". For more than 6 years I have been engaged in scientific research covering the issues of empires and modern states, power and sovereignty, hegemony and ideology, political space and order. I explore the way in which the various contemporary "polities" organize space, constitute political order, and reproduce structures of violence, consent, submission, and coercion. I analyze all this with an emphasis on the processes of globalization and geohistorical transformations.
Presentation title: (Post)imperial space and its transformations: from the war in Ukraine to social protests around the world
Abstract: The war in Ukraine has become, perhaps, the most significant event of the 21st century. However, this war has also become a bifurcation point in a vast global space, where almost every month there are social movements, attempts to overthrow the government, pre-revolutionary events, and so on. I see in this a certain geohistorical pattern, within which the Empire is located. It was the empire - as a political form of space organization and a form of political order at the same time - that for many centuries was a universal form of space optimization. Empires arose in different centuries, in different regions, and had different durations of existence. However, one fact remained important: the empire always "played" with space, which laid certain risks for potential states of the future. Let us recall the processes of decolonization around the world in the 20th century. We have seen how these processes led to protracted liberation (colonial) wars, revolutions and uprisings, civil wars, and so on. That is, a certain "post-imperial paradox" arose when it was necessary to simultaneously fight the empire and begin the process of state-building.

Presentation title: "Biomedical research in Taras Shevchenko National University of Kyiv (Ukraine): the role of immune cells in obesity"
Abstract: Inflammation is thought to be the hallmark of obesity. The production of adipokines and chemokines by adipocytes causes macrophage recruitment to the adipose tissue resulting in low-grade local inflammation and permanent oxidative stress. The aggravation of inflammatory conditions leads to proinflammatory cytokine production by blood monocytes and the establishment of the inflammatory state in distant organs and tissues. Substantial progress in obesity study has been achieved on animal models of high-fat diet-induced obesity whereas the mechanism of progesterone-induced obesity remains incompletely clarified. Progesterone (Pg) is widely used for contraception and hormone replacement therapy. It enhances food intake and therefore causes significant weight gain by increasing fat deposition. The current study focused on clarifying the mechanisms of inflammatory response of immune cells in Pg-induced obesity and revealing the effects of yeast melanin and cerium dioxide nanoparticles as potential anti-obesity drugs.
In our studies, the female rats treated with Pg within 28 days demonstrated the rise of body weight up to 27% and elevation of body mass index by 2.3-times suggesting the development of obesity. We have shown the stimulation polarization of peritoneal macrophages towards the M1 pro-inflammatory type (enhanced NO-production) and suppression of their M2 polarization (decreased arginase activity). It was associated with the increase of pro-inflammatory cytokine IL-1 and IFN-γ levels and the decrease of IL-4, IL-10, and TGF-β anti-inflammatory cytokine levels in the blood serum of Pg-treated rats. The serum level of medium size circulative immune complexes was elevated suggesting the aggravation of the inflammatory process. These results reflect the development of systemic inflammatory response in Pg-induced obesity and are consistent with the reported data from murine high-fat diet models.
Antioxidants have attracted particular attention as a promising tool for oxidative stress alleviation and therefore could be prospective drugs in obesity treatment. In the current study, we focused on melanin from Antarctic black yeast Nadsoniella nigra and established its anti-obesity and anti-inflammatory effects on an animal model of Pg-induced obesity. Melanin prevented the weight gain and the fat mass growth caused by progesterone. It also suppressed the M1 polarization of peritoneal macrophages decreasing NO production and ROS level in peritoneal macrophages and decreasing the circulative immune complexes level. Melanin possesses the same effects when it is used simultaneously with Pg (prophylaxis model) and one month after Pg treatment (cure model).
Cerium dioxide nanoparticles (CeO2NPs) are promising potential therapeutics due to their ability to destroy reactive oxygen species and to very low toxicity. They may be useful for preventing or ameliorating oxidative stress-related pathologies, cancer diseases, and aging. These nanoparticles may have the potential to alleviate the negative effects of obesity - the disease associated with long-term oxidative stress and inflammation. Our data from the rat model of Pg-induced obesity indicate that cerium dioxide nanoparticles prevent weight gain in rats and potently suppress the M1 polarization of peritoneal macrophages decreasing the NO-production.
Taken together, our results show that systemic inflammatory response in Pg-induced obesity involves the resident lymphocytes of peritoneal cavity and is suppressed by antioxidant compounds yeast melanin and cerium dioxide nanoparticles. Despite the available data, further studies are needed to deeply understand the mechanisms of inflammatory response in obesity of different origins and to clarify the role of antioxidants in its treatment and prevention.

Presentation title: Experimental study of a behavioural model for motivating consumer choice of clean energy
Abstract: Implementing a green consumer choice algorithm involves working with public consciousness to increase the value of clean energy to consumers and introducing market-based tools to monetize this value. The objectivity of green consumer choice can be ensured by establishing a transparent process for capturing the clean energy used at all stages of production and by introducing sustainable behavioral patterns that will enable the realization of green consumer choice in different consumption areas. The international science-practice experiment "Making Coffee with the Sun" should be seen as a social integration tool, which aims to contribute to the implementation of the European Green Deal and the REPowerEU plan and toe UN Sustainable Development Goals in the energy sector.

Presentation title: Russian-Ukrainian War: the challenges for the criminal justice of Ukraine
Abstract: Russia attacked Ukraine not on 22 February 2022, but in 2014 by the occupation of Crimea (using the fake referendum) and by the military conflict at Luhansk and Donetsk regions.
It is a difficult challenge for criminal justice too, especially for criminal procedure. Ukraine used the derogation of obligation according to the ECHR, also in criminal procedure, because since 2014 Ukraine is restricted in realization of jurisdiction in Crimea and in the parts of Luhansk and Donetsk regions.
The Ukrainian Parliament adopted amendments to the Criminal Procedure Code of Ukraine : in 2014 (new chapter IX-1 Special rules of pre-trial investigation during martial law, emergency or in the area of an ongoing counter-terrorist operation), in 2022 (new articles in the chapter IX-1, current title: Special regime of pre-trial investigation, trial in conditions of martial law).
It is important to discuss the reality of the criminal procedure of Ukraine in conditions of martial law.

Presentation title: Studying at Ukrainian Medical University in English
Abstract: Two approaches to the organization of English-language education at higher educational institutions of medical profile have been compared. They are: 1) using English as the language of communication in the classroom (English as Medium of Instruction, or EMI), and 2) integrated learning of the foreign (English) language and professionally-oriented disciplines (Content and Language Integrated Learning, or CLIL). The relevance of the topic bases on the integration of Ukrainian higher education into the European and global academic space, tasks of Higher Education quality assurance, including English-language communicative competitiveness of graduates, and the increasing number of international students at Ukrainian medical universities. The study shows that EMI fits for teaching international students. Being introduced at a medical university, EMI leads to the development of all resources for education in English. Eventually, it might allos to teach Ukrainian Masters of Medicine in English. But for them, the CLIL model is more appropriate. The authors identify the most pressing issues that should be studied for the successful implementation of CLIL in the educational process.

Presentation title: The fullerene C70 colloidal properties: aggregation, coagulation
Abstract: Fullerenes are one of the most promising nanomaterials nowadays. They and their derivatives are actively researched in a wide range of branches: electronics, medicine, catalysis and nanosensors. So, the water solutions of fullerenes (hydrosols) are well studied. At the same time in the case of organosolls mainly only researches which deal with solubility and aggregation are carried out. Such important phenomena like coagulation, which can discover specificity and features of fullerenes interactions, are poorly described. This work deals with coagulation and aggregation processes in organic solvents mixtures, which allows determining and describing some specific processes and interactions between fullerenes nanoparticles or between nanoparticles and its surrounding (ions, solvent molecules). The current research shows that classic DLVO theory, which has been used for a long time also for fullerenes sols, predicts wrong results and parameters if used without so called non-DLVO contributions. According to the obtained data, wrong results and values can be present even in the case of well studied hydrosols.
