About the city of Perm

International Conference on Applied Research in Economics (iCare8) will be held in September, 2020 in Perm, a city founded in 1723 by Vasily Tatishchev, a prominent Russian statesman appointed by the Tsar Peter the Great as a chief manager of Ural factories. A lot of famous people have lived and worked in the city: Nikolay Slavyanov, a Russian inventor who in 1888 introduced arc welding with consumable metal electrodes; Alexander Popov, a Russian physicist, the first person to demonstrate the practical application of electromagnetic radio waves; Sergey Dyagilev, a Russian art critic, patron, ballet impresario and founder of the Ballet Russes in Paris, just to name a few. A city of almost 1,000,000 people, Perm is situated on the eastern bank of the Kama river, 1200 km east of Moscow. Often described as an industrial center, Perm is a city of much diversity. Whether you like outdoor pursuits or you prefer something more cultural, Perm has something for everyone.
