The first conference «Physical and Technical Informatics — CPT» was held in May 2013 in Cyprus (Larnaca). It was organized by the Russian Academy of Sciences, the Moscow Institute of Physics and Technology, and a number of other Russian and foreign organizations (such as Fraunhofer Institute for Algorithms and Scientific Computing, Nanyang Technological University (Singapore), University of Calgary (Canada), etc.) The CPT conference was held annually, first in Cyprus (at the Cyprus University of Technology (CUT)), and then, starting from 2018, in various organizations in the Moscow region.
Among the foreign participants of the conferences were such leading experts as Professor Wolfgang Heiden (Fraunhofer Institute for Algorithms and Scientific Computing, a leading specialist in the field of bioengineering and bioinformatics), Professor Martin Reiser (Professor at Nanyang Technological University (Singapore), a member of the Swiss Academy of Engineering and Research Fellow Institute of Electrical and Electronic Engineers), Marina L. Gavrilova (Professor of the Department of Computer Science, University of Calgary (Canada)), etc.
On the Russian side, the founder of the direction «Physical and technical informatics» and (until 2018) the organizer and permanent chairman of the Organizing Committee of the conferences «Physical and technical informatics — CPT» was Doctor of Physical and Mathematical Sciences, Professor, Honorary Professor of MIPT Stanislav Vladimirovich Klimenko.
Stanislav Vladimirovich Klimenko was born on November 7, 1941 in Tbilisi, grew up in Belaya Tserkov, Ukraine. In 1966 he graduated from the Moscow Institute of Physics and Technology with a degree in Experimental Nuclear Physics, in 1974 he defended his Ph.D. thesis, in 1986 — his doctorate, in 1977 he began teaching, which he successfully continued throughout his life. His research interests were very broad: visualization and virtual environment systems, information systems, situational analysis and security systems, the Web and the Internet, experiment automation and data analysis in nuclear physics. From 1967 to 2002 he worked at the Institute for High Energy Physics (IHEP) as a junior researcher, then a group leader, senior researcher, head of the laboratory with the assignment of the duties of deputy head of department, chief researcher. From 2003 to 2006, he worked at the Space Research Institute of the Russian Academy of Sciences as a chief specialist. From 2006 to 2008, he worked at the Scientific Research Center for Electronic Computing Techniques, OJSC as the head of department. From 2008 to 2009 he worked at the Polytechnic Museum as a leading researcher. From 2009 to 2010 he worked at the Moscow Radiotechnical Institute of the Russian Academy of Sciences as head of the sector. From 2010 to 2011 he worked at the Institute of the History of Natural Science and Technology named after S. I. Vavilov RAS in the position of chief scientific officer. In October 2012 he was elected a professor of the department of engineering geometry, computer graphics and computer-aided design of the Nizhny Novgorod State University of Architecture and Civil Engineering (NNGASU), and he was the chairman of the dissertation council D 999.048.02 at NNGASU. He taught at MIPT since 1977: for more than 15 years he was deputy head of the basic Department of High Energy Physics, from 1998 to 2011 he was the head of the Department of System Integration and Management, recently he was the scientific director of the Department of Physical and Technical Informatics. Under the leadership of S.V. Klimenko, and under the auspices of IHEP-MIPT, the School for Young Scientists “Automation and Effectiveness of Scientific Research” was operating for 10 years. Under the leadership of S.V. Klimenko there were defended more than 40 diploma and master’s theses, 15 candidate dissertations. He was a visiting professor at the University of South Bohemia in Ceske Budejovic, Nanyang Technological University in Singapore and Tamkang University in Taiwan, and a visiting researcher at the Fraunhofer Institute for Media Communication, St. Augustine, Germany He took part in the design, creation and research of automation systems for experiments in high energy physics. Under his leadership, a number of international projects on new dual-use information technologies were carried out, supported by grants from the Ministry of Science, Higher Education and Technical Policy of the Russian Federation, RFBR and the European Union. He was the laureate of the USSR Council of Ministers Prize for Science and Technology in 1984, and a veteran of nuclear energy and industry since 1999. In 2001, under the leadership of S.V. Klimenko there was created the first in Russia installation of a virtual environment and the first in the world — on one personal computer. The installation was demonstrated at the International Exhibition CeBIT’2002 and at the jubilee conference-exhibition dedicated to the 10th anniversary of the RFBR. He has published over 300 scientific papers and 6 monographs. He was a member of the section «Microelectronics, computer technology and automation, nuclear instrumentation» of the Scientific and Technical Council No.1 of the Ministry of Atomic Energy of Russia, the chairman of the working group on the conversion of enterprises of the Minatom «Informatization of scientific and design work», an elected member of the IHEP NTS, a member of the Big Scientific Council of MIPT Member of the Editorial Board, Computer & Graphics (Elsevier). He was a member of the editorial boards of LNCS-Springer, Programming, International Virtual Reality Journal, chairman of conferences VEonPC20xx, MEDIAS20xx, CPT20xx, SCVRT20xx, GraphiCon-2015, IEEE Ubi-Media-Computing-2016. S.V. Klimenko was a member of international professional organizations: American Mathematical Society — AMS, Association of Computing Machines — ACM — senior member, Institute of Electrical and Electronic Engineers — IEEE — senior member. He was an RFBR expert in the following areas: «Oriented fundamental research» and «Creation and development of information and telecommunication resources for fundamental research», as well as an expert of the European Union on information technologies. He took part in the evaluation of the scientific work of the Fraunhofer Institute for Media Communications as part of an international group of experts, and he registered in the Federal Register of Experts in Science and Technology under the Ministry of Education and Science of Russia. He was a member of the RFBR Expert Council on Information Systems.
Stanislav Vladimirovich was the founder of the Institute of Physical and Technical Informatics (IPTI). IPTI was created as an independent research institute, whose activities were aimed at the development of fundamental interdisciplinary researches based on modern computer technologies and their implementation in Russia to solve a wide class of problems in science, industry and education. The Institute was organized in 1994 on the basis of the IHEP system analysis laboratory in Protvino near Moscow as the Russian Center for Physical and Technical Informatics (RCPTI) on the initiative and with the participation of the Russian Ministry of Atomic Energy, the Russian Ministry of Science and Technical Policy, Lomonosov Moscow State University, Moscow Physics Technical Institute, the Tsiolkovsky Moscow Aviation Technological Institute, as well as a number of enterprises and commercial companies. In 1999, the RCPTI was transformed into an autonomous non-profit organization «Institute of Physical and Technical Informatics», and in February 2019, IPTI was transformed into an autonomous non-profit organization «Research Center for Physical and Technical Informatics» (ANO » SRCIPT «).
