Vladimir Shiltsev

Vladimir Shiltsev, head of Fermilab’s Accelerator Physics Center, was recently elected president of the Russian-speaking Academic Scientists Association.

The roughly 400-member association has two branches, one in the United States (called the Russian-American Scientists Association) and one in Europe, as well as members in Asia. Its objectives are to consolidate the Russian scientific diaspora, advance the career development and qualifications of its members and provide opportunities for social and cultural exchanges.

Shiltsev will serve a two-year term as president.
