Dear participants of the Ziegel Readings, dear colleagues, ladies and gentlemen!

While the cursed COVID-19 pandemic currently appears to be easing, restrictive measures to counter it remain in place and will remain in place for several more months. Among them are those that do not allow us to hold our conference in a format acceptable for traditional communication of participants and exchange of views. Along with the mask mode and the 50% occupancy rate of the hall, this is work without breaks and leaving the hall, without the opportunity to communicate in the lobby, as well as the absence of a buffet, the Organizing Committee table and tables for selling literature, etc. Despite the friendly attitude of the Meridian Center administration to our conference, it cannot cancel the restrictions received from the Moscow authorities.

We sincerely hope that the circumstances will change for the better and

The 54th Ziegel Readings will finally take place on November 20, 2021.

Welcome to the website of the Association "Ecology of the Unknown"!

We wish you good health and all the best,
and hope for a long-awaited meeting
Organizing Committee of the Ziegel Readings
