Igor Sheremet

Academician of the Russian Academy of Sciences, well-known scientist in the field of information technology, systems analysis, artificial intelligence, digital economy, cybersecurity, computing and telecommunication systems. Doctor of technical sciences, professor. In 2016 he was elected a Corresponding Member of the Russian Academy of Sciences in the Department of Nanotechnology and Information Technology, and in 2022, Academician of the Russian Academy of Sciences. Author of more than 300 scientific papers, including 25 monographs, some of which were published abroad.

He was awarded the Order for Military Merit, the medal of the Order for Merit to the Motherland, 2nd class. Laureate of the State Prize of the Russian Federation named after Marshal of the Soviet Union G.K. Zhukov (2013) and the Prize of the Government of the Russian Federation in the field of science and technology (2018).

In 1977 he graduated from the Dzerzhinsky Military Academy, where he received a qualification as a military software engineer. In the 1980s proposed a new approach to the formalization and axiomatization of databases and knowledge bases. He developed methods for the associative organization of large databases and knowledge bases, as well as a set of methods and architectural solutions for parallelizing logical inference through its macropipelining, which ensured distributed intelligent processing of intensive heterogeneous information flows. The approach was first successfully implemented in the second half of the 1980s on the EC series mainframes. At the same time, a prototype web client for personal computers was created.

Since the 2000s, Igor Anatolyevich has been developing the theory of recursive multisets and methods of its application for solving problems of system analysis, operations research and digital economy. As part of this direction, he proposed a mathematical toolkit that combines the advantages of classical mathematical programming and modern knowledge engineering — a family of filtering multiset grammars and metagrammars.

He is a co-chairman of the problem group “Promising mathematical tools for applied data-based systems analysis” of the Committee on Data for Science and Technology (CODATA) of the International Council for Science (ISC), deputy chairman of the RAS Committee on Systems Analysis, deputy chairman of the Scientific Council on Robotics and Mechatronics RAS, a member of the Scientific Council of the RAS “Quantum Technologies” and a member of the Scientific Council “Scientific Foundations for the Construction of Computing, Telecommunication and Location Systems” of the RAS. In 2014–2020 he was a member of the Scientific Advisory Committee at the International Institute for Applied Systems Analysis (IIASA). In 2020–2022 was Chairman of the CODATA and IIASA Joint Working Group on Big Data and Systems Analysis.

Since 2019, member of the Presidium of the Higher Attestation Commission at the Ministry of Education and Science of Russia. Chairman of the editorial board of the journal “Cybersecurity Issues”.


Grygory Steblov

Professor of the Russian Academy of Sciences, a well-known Russian scientist in the field of mathematical geophysics and geodynamics. Author and co-author of 116 scientific papers, including two monographs and one atlas. 3 candidates of sciences were trained under his leadership.

He developed and applied new approaches to the study of modern movements of the lithosphere by satellite geodetic methods and formed a general concept of geodynamic studies of various scales from the global to the regional level. Based on the developed concept, a system of multi-scale satellite geodetic monitoring was created to study modern geodynamics, crustal movements and seismicity on the territory of the Russian Federation. Main research results: updated models of modern global kinematics of lithospheric plates; revealed deviations of modern movements of lithospheric plates, obtained from space geodesy data, from models built earlier on the basis of geological and geophysical data for the Pliocene-Quaternary period; identification and refinement of the configuration of interplate boundaries in the northeastern part of Asia, the northwestern part of the Pacific Ocean. For tectonically active regions, he investigated and established the possibility of solving inverse problems arising from the geodynamic interpretation of geodetic observations. The approaches found made it possible to simulate interplate deformation processes in a number of subduction regions at various stages of the seismic cycle, including preseismic and postseismic, and also to refine the asthenosphere rheology in such regions. A number of results are also associated with the identification of the impact on the ionosphere of the strongest earthquakes, including tsunamigenic ones.
