We are deeply impressed by your desire to get all kinds of proposals focused on Global peace. I will speak at the congress in Brazil and will mention your initiative for GUS and GLOSAS/USA projects to connect everybody with everybody.

 

Meanwhile please have Talgat Akbashev's presentation on "Earth is the planet for Education" and you will find results of our 10 years experience in my "Planet 3000" presentation I gave to you in Gorno-Altaysk.

Head of Chemalskiy Rayon Municipality

 

 

Dear Takeshi Utsumi!

 

Administration of "Chemalskiy rayon" municipality thanks you for the opportunity to participate in presentation of the international project "Global University System/Altai Mir" and expresses its interest in the project.

In view of geographical location and level of economic and social development information can become one of the crucial subjects defining long-term perspectives for our municipality.

Today Chemalskiy rayon and rural settlements have no access to modern communication systems, informational technologies, e-mails, distant education, multimedia, videoconferences, IP-telephony, telemedicine, etc. That is why electronic documents circulations between organizations are practically absent. Facsimile and State post service are used more often. We think that in modern practice it is necessary to set up communication that will allow to transmit data and to hold videoconferences.

Taking into account character and variety of municipalities' development forms it is necessary to create a complex visual model of the territory, a universal informational environment and effective communication with management.

The Administration of municipality of "Chemalskiy rayon" studied the project "Global University System/Altai Mir" in details. The project makes it possible to join population, industry, science, education and administration into united correlated informational environment. The Administration of municipality of "Chemalskiy rayon" appreciates the project's significance and necessity for the Republic of Altai and expresses a desire and readiness to participate in that project.

In the framework of realization of the republic program "Program for the public finances management system reforming in the Republic of Altai for 2006-2007" it is planned to set up a Multiservice net of the Republic that will allow to unite telecommunication and informational resources of state and local government into one environment, and also will increase level of technical equipping for developing telecommunications in the Republic of Altai. However today realization of the Program in Chemalskiy rayon has not been started yet. Moreover, this program does not touch educational system and healthcare.

Chemalskiy municipality has already fulfilled a series of preparing activities to develop modern communication and connection to a broadband Internet in particular.

We have already installed interschool local network, that includes 2 computer classes, physic laboratory, multimedia laboratory of Russian language and literature, library, common room of teachers of primary school, room of social educational specialist, psychologist's room, reception room, director's office.

We installed a transmitter-receiver. But the school doesn't have access to Internet.

It is really necessary to provide connection to Internet in order to use informational and educational Internet resources more effectively and to register informational needs of all users including school administration, teachers, librarians, pupils who participates in republic and federal net projects.

It also necessary to think how to solve problems with staff training and providing organizations with enough quantity of computer equipment.

Access to Internet will allow schools to communicate with each other, to get information, to prepare pupils for federal exams, to provide distant education.

 

We are sending to you information about organizations of Chemalskiy rayon that are ready to participate in the project GUS/Altai Mir:

To the project manager of "Global university system Altai Mir"

Mister Takeshi Utsumi

 

Dear Takeshi Utsumi!

 

Supporting the idea of the project "Global university system Altai-Mir", contributing to the development of informational society, we inform, that totals of the latest years prove that the Altai Republic remains behind other regions of the Russian Federation in a field of up to date information technologies, namely:

 

1. An informational-communication infrastructure, not only of hard-to-reach territories but also the whole republic is not developed.

 

2. There are no informational services for population, enterprises, organizations and government establishments allowing solving such socially important questions as development of remote education, TV-medicine, optimization of state control, prevention and liquidation of natural and man-caused disasters.

 

One should bend every effort to overcoming of existing problems in spheres of communication and information with a purpose of creation of uniform informational-communication web of the Altai Republic and informatization of State institutions' activities.

 

Starting from aforesaid, we express our desire and readiness to participate in all offered working groups, and hope for further profitable cooperation.

 

Yours faithfully,

Committee chairman Tatin E.G.

On the project "Global University System/ Altai Mir"

Ministry of Healthcare of the Republic of Altai supports development of telecommunication system (firstly for introduction of telemedicine) that will include all settlements of the Republic of Altai into the project "Global University System/Altai Mir". The opportunity to raise population knowledge about healthy life-style, culture of health and possibility to provide distant education for medical specialists are also attractive sides of the project.

Today we introduce the program on providing tele-consulting and monitoring of pregnant women of risky child-bearing in our medical organizations. This program functions through Barnaul Center of Telemedicine Service using Internet. However Internet is bad because of bad communications in the Republic.

Gorno-Altaisliy State University

 

 

Dear D-r Takeshi Utsumi!

 

Today Gorno-Altaiskiy State University is a dynamically developing university of the Republic of Altai that plays increasingly active role in regional, federal and international educational environment. It cooperates with many Universities and scientific organizations of Russia, Europe, Asia and America.

 

The GASU holds researches on different areas: development of highly secured natural territories of the Republic of Altai system (we composed a map of highly secured natural territories of the Republic of Altai, hold researches on further extension of highly secured natural territories through creation of trans-boundary biosphere reserves); study of archeological complexes of Gorni Altai; biological variety mapping, GIS-technologies (we composed maps illustrating 90 species of mammals of Gorni Altai; using GIS-technologies we calculated landscape areas and schemed specific maps of all mammals density); complex social and ecological monitoring of seismic processes in Gorni Altai (complex research of dangerous processes using geographical, geological, landscape-climatic, geochemical methods; composing maps of natural violations; research of changes in chemical composition of groundwater and superficial waters, groundwater level; researches of consequences of dangerous processes for population health; monitoring researches on present network observing activating geological processes); researches of ethno-social history processes and modern problems of Gorni Altai people, etc.

 

Staff of the GASU are authors and participants of the republic program "Development of united educational informational environment of the Republic of Altai for 2002-2005", participate in realization of the republic program "Electronic Altai". The GASU provides considerable training and retraining courses for population of the Republic of Altai and neighboring regions of Altaiskiy Kray.

 

Along with this the GASU experiences considerable difficulties with full access to informational scientific and educational network (RUNNET, RBNET, etc.). This is connected with low level of modern telecommunications development in the Republic and absence connection hubs (with land-based optical fiber) to leading telecommunication companies (Transtelecom, Rostelecom) in Gorno-Altaisk. Today the GASU connected to RUNNET network through the Altaic Sate University (Barnaul) by unstable narrow (33 Kb/s) analogous dedicated channel.

 

Among the most urgent tasks for the University development that require access to broadband Internet through scientific and educational nets (RUNNET, RBNET, GLORIAD) there are the following:

1.        Full access to Internet (e-mail, web-resources, network databases, e-libraries) for students, professors and research officers of the GASU

2.        Posting in Internet the unique scientific and educational resources of the University (web-sites, e-libraries, scientific data-bases)

3.        Providing the Internet system of distant education for population of the Republic of Altai

4.        Necessity to connect to the Internet seismic station "Gorno-Altaisk" installed in the GASU together with Geophysics service of the Siberian Branch of Russian Academy of Sciences. The seismic station was created in May 2006 to provide monitoring of seismic processes on the territory of Northern Altai and to transmit data to proceed them through Internet in Geographical service of Siberian Branch of Russian Academy of Sciences.

 

The GASU supports realization of the project "Global University System/Altai Mir" and is ready to participate in its realization in the Republic of Altai.
