More details:


The initiators of the international conference organization were scientists of National Technical University “KhPI” and Mishkolt University back in 1993. Since then, the event has transformed into an International scientific forum. Every year approximately three thousand scientists and young scientists from all over the world discuss global problems of the human civilization development.

During the 30-year history of the conference, participants have made more than fifty thousand reports, more than 350 future Doctors of Science and more than 3,000 Candidates of Sciences and PhDs passed the approval of their scientific works. During this time, more than 150 eminent foreign guests were participants of MicroCAD, in particular Rectors, Vice-Rectors, Deans of Faculties, Professors, Ministers, Ambassadors, Heads of Organizations and Industrial enterprises and others.
