The event is dedicated to the 160th anniversary of the birth of Academician V.I. Vernadsky and the 100th anniversary of his article "The Beginning and Eternity of Life".
Organizers: V.I. Vernadsky Foundation and V.I. Vernadsky Institute of Geochemistry and Analytical Chemistry of the Russian Academy of Sciences (GEOHI RAS).
The main purpose of the Conference is to present and discuss new ideas in the field of the evolution of life and the biosphere, the embodiment of V.I. Vernadsky's ideas for the development of modern technologies and the formation of state programs for the implementation of V.I. Vernadsky's legacy in the field of philosophy, biogeochemistry, ecology.
Special attention during the Conference was paid to the problems of geological eternity, modern assessment of the state and evolution of the biosphere, anthropogenic evolution of the biosphere, the development of modern information technologies and artificial intelligence, the methodology of studying natural and man-made complexes, the application of biogeochemistry achievements in the national economy, medicine and education, the expansion of cooperation between scientists of universities and research centers for the effective development of this relevant field of knowledge.
The problems of biogeochemistry are problems of life, they include a wide range of issues: energy production processes, environmental quality, formation and use of raw materials, environmentally acceptable materials, waste recycling, interaction between man and nature, the place and role of man in the biosphere and the universe.
The demand for biogeochemistry is due to the technogenic evolution of the planet and the search for adequate ways of interaction between man and nature. Knowledge of biogeochemistry determines the strategy of formation of noospheric technologies.
The following topics were discussed during the Conference:
