Dr. Elishakoff will be inducted to the Academy at the ceremony which will take place next year during celebration of 120th birth anniversary of N.I. Muskhelishvili in presence of Georgia's President, Mr. Michael Saakashvili.

The academy has several American Foreign members including Professor George Leitmann of the University of California, Berkeley, a world expert in theory of control.
