Weekly scientific workshops for MIPT and CMC MSU students are held in the ISP RAS under the guidance of base department lecturers.
The ISP RAS supports active communication with leading international scientific centers, including UNO/IIST (UNO, Macao), Fraunhofer (Germany), INRIA (France), RAL (UK), NPS (USA). Furthermore, the institute performs scientific researches by orders and grant projects of huge foreign commercial companies Nortel (Canada), Telelogic (Sweden), Microsoft Research (UK), Intel (USA), HP (USA), Samsung (South Korea) etc. Students and postgraduates are regularly involved in these activities. The department students participate in Russian and international conferences, scientific schools. Many students have several scientific publications by the moment of completing master course, which allows them to continue their education as postgraduates.
