By Laman Ismayilova
A General Assembly was held at the International Academy of Sciences (IAS) to mark the 15th anniversary of establishment of the IAS Azerbaijan Section.
 The event was attended by Walter Kofler, President of the International Academy of Science (Health and Ecology), and President of Academy's Russian section Oleg Glazachev, President of Academy's Azerbaijan Section Elchin Khalilov and other members.
Kofler, addressing the event, voices satisfaction with the activities fulfilled by the Azerbaijan Section of the International Academy of Sciences.
During his speech, the world-famous scientist spoke about role of Azerbaijan's national leader Heydar Aliyev and reminded the audience that in 2002 the national leader was elected Honorary Academician of the IAS (Health and Environment) and was awarded the Golden Sign for his outstanding contribution in shaping a democratic civil society in the country, as well as the effective development of science and education.
In 2007,   President Ilham Aliyev was awarded the Golden Sign of the Academy for achievements in formation of democratic society, rapid development of the economy, science and education in Azerbaijan.
Glazachev, for his part, spoke about the excellent results achieved during the cooperation between the Russian and Azerbaijani Sections of the Academy.
He stressed the international Symposium "Problems of rhythms in natural science" held at the Peoples' Friendship University of Russia in 2004.
In his speech, Khalilov provided detailed information on the activities of the Azerbaijan Section of the Academy.

The Azerbaijan Section held a series of major international and national conferences, issued  monographs, books, brochures, three volumes of research papers such as H&E “Science Without Borders”.
Currently, the Azerbaijan Section is engaged in work on forecasting of earthquakes. The main achievement of the institution is the development of a new technology that predicts the occurrence of an earthquake, as well as special station ATROPATENA.
The stations records waves spread over large distances within the interval 3–7 days before the earthquake. In 2009, Network for the Forecasting of Earthquakes (GNFE) was established in London on basis of these stations.  Later, three seismic stations  were established  in Indonesia (Yogyakarta), Pakistan (Islamabad) and Azerbaijan (Baku).
The event continued with the ceremony to award full members and member-correspondents of the Azerbaijan Section.
Professor Mahbuba Valiyeva received the highest award of the Azerbaijan Section of the International Academy of Sciences  – the Golden SIGN and diploma for outstanding achievements in the development of pharmaceuticals, science and education.
