Journal's objectives​

Within the scientific discussion to try to get closer to the “Creator’s idea”, to understand and to explain the process of creation, development, self-organisation, modelling and designing of the future through the knowledge of the process of creating artefacts, evolution and selection.

Journal tasks

  • Bring together efforts of Russian and foreign scientists, focusing on actual problems of the methods of designing and offering a place for scientific discussions;
  • Propose approaches, technologies, methods and algorithms for solving practical problems in various fields and areas of designing based on the developing scientific direction;
  • Assist young scholars, postgraduates and undergraduates in the understanding of their responsibility for the development of modern technologies, that ultimately form the future of civilization.
