Boris P. Koloskov was born in 1946. In 1973 he graduated from the Faculty of Radio Engineering and Cybernetics of the Moscow Institute of Physics and Technology.
In the years 1979-1981 he participated in the international "Precipitation Enhancement Project" (PEP) in Spain.
From 1986 to 1990, B. Koloskov worked in the Soviet-Cuban Laboratory (Cuba), responsible for the "Artificial precipitation enhancement from tropical convective clouds in Cuba".
Since 1990 he has participated in numerous experiments and pilot weather modification projects in Syria, Iran, Portugal and Yakutia, and in dispersion of supercooled fogs on highways and airports in Italy and Kazakhstan, as well as in large-scale works to improve weather conditions in Moscow, St. Petersburg, Astana (Kazakhstan) and Beijing (China).

Plenary session 3: The Future of Science
The Republic of Cyprus is one of the countries that recently face increasing shortage of fresh water. The speaker will show and comment the results of analysis of the climatic characteristics of clouds and precipitation for the territory of Cyprus and the results of numerical simulations and cost estimates of works on cloud seeding. Using the airborne and ground-based cloud seeding by ice-forming reagents Cyprus can obtain 10-30% additional water in the whole territory of the island.
