The Polish scientific community issued a joint statement regarding the Russian aggression against Ukraine, condemning the attack on our neighbour and the use of violence against it, expressing full solidarity with the entire Ukrainian nation and support for Ukraine as a sovereign state. The Ministry of Education and Science in Poland ordered a suspension of institutional collaboration on research with all formal and institutional partnerships with educational and knowledge institutions in the Russian Federation and Belarus. This means that we cannot accept conference registrations from scientists affiliated to a Russian or Belarussian institution.

Every accepted presentation is invited to submit a paper that will be published in Nukleonika (
The manuscripts shall be send to till 31 of August 2022.
