Important Information

In light of the sad events in Ukraine, we have decided to suspend the membership of Innopolis University until further notice. This decision, which is very regrettable for us, is in no way directed against our esteemed colleagues at Innopolis University or even against the students at Innopolis. Rather, it is a necessary symbolic act to make it clear that we strongly condemn the criminal actions of the Russian government.
