 Zababakhin Scientific Talks is a highly recognized scientific forum on high-energy density physics (HEDP), where scientists share latest achievements, review results of research programs, and discuss directions of further study.

The Conference is named after Evgeny Ivanovich Zababakhin (1917–1984), a prominent scientist, member of the Academy of Sciences, whose research strongly influenced HEDP evolution in Russia. He served as a Scientific Director of RFNC–VNIITF for 25 years. At that period RFNC–VNIITF demonstrated outstanding achievements in several fields, including cumulation phenomena, that always stayed in focus of Zaba-bakhin’s keen interest. He summarized those studies in a monograph “Phenomena of unlimited cumulation”. Cumulation phenomena are still of great interest to the global research community and the Zababakhin Scientific Talks Conference provides a great platform for lively discussions of the matter.


Topics of the Conference cover the main areas of HEDP in seven sections:
1.    Space protection of Earth, high-intensity processes and turbulence;
2.    Explosion and detonation phenomena;
3.    Dense plasma phenomena;
4.    Properties of matter at high-intensity processes;
5.    Scientific bases of nuclear power engineering and nuclear materials;
6.    Numerical methods, algorithms, codes and accurate solutions;
7.    Application of physico-mathematical technologies to solving basic medical problems.
The Conference addresses both traditional and new research directions. It covers the methods of reaching high energy density; problems of its application in modern physical facilities; high-intensity processes in laboratory experiments, technical applications, and natural phenomena, including astrophysical. The Conference also considers fundamental aspects of nuclear power, numerical simulation of individual processes and complex phenomena and application of promising technologies to basic medical problems, including simulation of dangerous infections propagation.
