Lomonosov Moscow State University campus in the southwest of Moscow disposes of several educational and congress buildings specially designed to host a large number of diverse activities, thus providing enough space to accommodate all the sessions, lectures, and Associated Events of the Conference.

The new university campus on Leninskie Gory greeted the first science students on August 27, 1953. Together with the new dormitories, the total floor area of the new campus buildings amounted to 640.000 sq. m, considerably more than 140.000 m2 of the buildings on the old campus. The grand opening of the MSU Main Building took place on September 1, 1953. Thus, on September 1, 2008 the temple of science and education celebrated its 55th anniversary, the territory of the University on Lenin Hills (Leninskiye Gory) being developed all these years.

The Second International Youth Forum on Soil and Water Conservation (2ndIYFSWC) and ICCE symposium 2018 "Climate Change Impacts on Sediment Dynamics: Measurement, Modellingand Management” 2018 will take place in one of very recent campus buildings (A,B,C), constructed to support the growing educational and public needs of the University. It is the first educational buildings, which were built on a new territory on September 2007.


The Shuvalovsky building contains a large number of rooms equipped with all necessary facilities, thus creating a rich and inspirational atmosphere for scientific discussions and public outreach events. Moreover, the building is just 600 meters from the historic Main Building of the University, one of the most magnificent Moscow ‘sky-scrapers’.

The campus, itself a historical site in the immediate vicinity of the ancient forest sloping down to the Moskva river bank (Vorobyevy Gory Wildlife Preserve), is just twenty minutes from Moscow city center by underground and can be easily accessed from the airports and railroad stations.
