* Research of gene pools of the peoples of the world
* Studies of ancient DNA
* Forensic genetics
* Development of population genetic databases
* Population-based biobanks
* Development of new methods and programs
* Interdisciplinary research
* Genetic genealogy

Abstracts selected by the Program Committee for oral presentations will be published in the Russian Journal of Genetics (included in the Web of Science Core Collection). A poster session will also be organized. Abstracts of both oral and poster presentations will be published in the Conference Proceedings.
