Vlasov Yevgeny, vice-president of Far Eastern Federal University says in his speech that Far Eastern Federal University and Harbin Engineering University are both gateways for the cooperation of China and Russia. The two sides have formed a good partnership for a long time and have achieved remarkable results in joint training of talents and cooperation in the field of engineering technology. We are especially committed to strengthening cooperation in polar hydroacoustic communications. He believes that this forum will definitely promote exchanges between China and Russia in the field of polar science and technology.

Ding Zhexue, a second-level inspector of the Education Department of Heilongjiang Province, points out in his speech that Heilongjiang Province deeply implements the development concept of “ice and snow are also invaluable assets”, actively promotes the industrialization of ice and snow resources, and carries out key technology research on polar equipment and cold area facilities, polar scientific research, ice and snow, etc., seizes the commanding heights at the forefront of science and technology in polar region, and continuously improves its capability of scientific and technological innovation. As the vanguard of higher education in Heilongjiang Province, Harbin Engineering University has accumulated tremendous strength in polar scientific research and international cooperation, and has provided talent support for the revitalization of Heilongjiang Province. He hopes that the experts and scholars would take this forum as an opportunity to fully exchange polar research development trends and technical connotations, share scientific and technological achievements, provide new ideas and contribute new wisdom to solve important scientific issues in the fields of polar acoustics and information technology, and work together to promote in-depth cooperation in the field of polar region between China and Russia, promote interactive development and mutual benefit.

Li Jiabiao, director of the Academic Committee of the Key Laboratory of Polar Ocean Acoustics and Technology Applications of the Ministry of Education and academician of the Chinese Academy of Engineering, delivered a speech. He says that China and Russia are advocates, practitioners and promoters of the “Polar Silk Road”. As an important part in the information field, polar acoustics is an important means of understanding and developing marine resources in the future. Some scientific research institutions in China and Russia have carried out joint research in theory, technology, equipment and experiments in the field of polar acoustics, and have achieved a series of fruitful research results.
