In their works, talented young scientists and students in Kazakh, Russian and English spoke to representatives of the scientific community about the problems of modern communications, digital diplomacy, the development of trilingualism in Kazakhstan and other relevant areas for research. More than two thousand students, undergraduates, doctoral students and young scientists aged under 35 became participants of the forum.
