      1. GENERAL INFORMATION

      In 2003 there will be 95-th anniversary of the 1908 Tunguska event. Despite
      numerous hypotheses, there is still no consensus on "what it was". The
      hypotheses vary from a meteorite fall, and a gas outburst to an "alien
      spaceship" (see, for example, Tunguska 98, and Tunguska 2001 conferences).
      Thus due to large interest in scientific and general public, administration
      of Evenkia has decided to organize, and hold an international conference
      "95-th Anniversary of the Tunguska event" (i.e. "Tunguska 2003") in cities
      of Moscow, and Krasnoyarsk, and in a settlement of Vanavara (which is about
      70 km from the Tunguska epicenter). And, of course, a trip to the Tunguska
      epicenter is planned.
      So if even you are not a scientist, but just interested to visit the
      epicenter as a tourist, for example, anyway you are welcome!
      Besides Tunguska, topics of the conference included related items, i.e other
      similar (whatever origin, as we don't know Tunguska's origin) natural events
      (including on other scales).
      Also a cultural program is to take place.
      Publication of Proceedings of the conference is planned.

      2. PLACE AND TIME

      The conference will be held in Moscow, a capital of Russia, and in
      Krasnoyarsk, Siberia, and in a settlement of Vanavara, Evenkia.

      Planned dates of the conference are on June 25-26, 2003 in Moscow, June
      28-29 in Krasnoyarsk, and June 30 - July 2 in Vanavara and for the trip to
      the Tunguska epicenter (see below). Currently, a possible shift of the
      schedule is no more than 1-2 days (it will be "zeroed" in a couple of
      months).
      A few days long trip to the Tunguska epicenter right after the conference is
      planned, as it was during Tunguska 95, and Tunguska 98, and Tunguska 2001
      conferences. If you want to better understand what does the trip mean, you
      can look at some pictures.
      And, of course, you can participate just in any part of the conference (just
      in Moscow, if you are not interested to visit the epicenter; or just in the
      trip to the epicenter, if you are a tourist, for example).
