In 2023, Bauman Moscow State Technical University together with Russian Academy of Science and Birla Institute of Technology and Science, Pilani for the first time plan to organise the International l scientific conference “Space. Time. Civilization. STC-2023, which will be held from 3 to 8 November in Egypt. The conference will focus on the theory and experiment in the field of gravitation, the study of the properties of astrophysical objects and large-scale structures of the Universe, and the relationship between the development of natural sciences and sustainable Civilization development. The STC-2023 Conference is a logical extension of the Finsler Extensions of Relativity Theory (FERT) international forums, as well as the Physical Interpretations of Relativity Theory (PIRT) international scientific conferences.

The “Space. Time. Civilization STC-2023” Conference to be held November 3rd to 8th, 2023, in the conference hall of The Oasis Hotel Pyramids, Cairo, Egypt.

The STC-2023 Conference will be provided with simultaneous interpretation of the papers and presentations, a sighteseeing programme and international broadcast of the presentations.

Three concurrent sections are planned for the conference:
* Space and Time.
* Civilization Issues.
* The Origins of Civilization.

The “Space and Time” section examines the latest achievements in the theory of gravitation, cosmology and astrophysics. The research areas for the section are as follows:
* Modern spacetime models
* Gravitation, cosmology and large-scale structures
* Gravitational waves
* High-energy astrophysics
* Problems of classical and quantum field theory
* Theoretical astrophysics, dark matter and dark energy
* Foundations of mathematics and fundamental physics

The “Civilization Issues” section focuses on the discussion of issues related to the future of the Universe, the future of the Earth and our civilization. The research areas for the section are as follows:
* Evolution of large-scale structures and the future of the Universe
* The future of the Earth: concerns and projections
* On the way to a sustainable civilization

The program of “The Origins of Civilization” section focuses on investigating possible traces of ancient civilizations and studying their heritage. The research areas for the history section are as follows:
* Artifacts of the predynastic period in Egypt
* Ancient civilization centers in Asia and the Americas
* Modern methods of artifact dating
* Myths and legends as a source of historical information
