Signs of Scientific Respect

Today I received a copy of proceedings of the conference I participated in. A peculiar moment is that my article about using Random Forest algorithm for the illegal dumping sites forecast is the very first article of my section (as well as of the whole book) and it was placed regardless of the alphabetical order of the family names of the authors (this order is correct for all other authors in all sections).

My presentation and speech were remarkable indeed - the director of my scientific-research centre later called it "the speech of guru" (actually, not a "guru", there is just no suitable equivalent in English for the word used). Also the extended version of this article for one of the journals of the Russian Academy of Sciences received an extremely positive feedback from the reviewers. So I suppose the position of my article is truly some kind of respect for the research and presentation and not a random editorial mistake.

Now I should overcome procrastination and make a post (or most likely two) about this research of mine.
