The 5th anniversary International Summer School of Young Scientists "Modern Information Technologies for solving scientific and Applied Problems" was held at the North Ossetian State University from 15 to 17 June. This annual event is held on the basis of the first JINR Information Center in the South of Russia with the active participation of the Joint Institute. This time, the participants of the school were children not only from the North Caucasus, but also from the Far East.
