The civilizational analysis of contemporary societies is becoming a field of heated discussions in social sciences and humanities, particularly, in the European social thought. The focus of research is centered on the topic of civilizational identity, the types of modernity, cultural globalization, sociocultural and political changes. The civilizational map of the world is being formed as a new reality, in which the contemporary societies, cultures and economies meet. Sociohistorical research testifies that for the last 150 years a radical transformation of civilizational theories has taken place. Particular civilizations as historical-cultural types are becoming a civilization-wide process with a fluid social structure, communication networks, cultural flows, virtualization, individualization. 

The purpose of the conference is to provide an opportunity for intrested scholars to discuss the broad range of issues concerning the research of contemporary civilizational processes and to present the empirical results.
