 Title
 Vertex Operator Algebras and Integrable Systems
 Abstract
 First I plan to discuss the known ways of constructing vertex operator algebras. We can use "screenings"  it means that we can find the vertex operator subalgebras into the known ones. Opposite idea  extensions of VOA. In this case we are trying to embed the algebra into the bigger. I present the basic examples of these constructions. We discuss Walgebras and their applications. Vertex algebras produce Dmodules on the interesting geometric objects. So we will talk about Hitchin systems and Dmodules appearing in geometric Langlands  usual and quantum.
 After that I explain what to do if we have the system of screening corresponding to the affine root system. They do not define vertex algebra but something which has not good name. The object which we get by this way is rather close to the nonconformal field theories and contains the integrable system  commutative algebra of KdV type.
