Abstract: Geometrical properties of nucleus-nucleus interactions at various centralities are calculated for the NICA energy range. A modified version of the Glauber Monte Carlo simulation code has been used for the calculations. It is shown that the geometrical properties of nucleus-nucleus interactions at the energies 5 – 10 GeV (NICA/MPD) and at energy 200 GeV (RHIC) are quite close to each other. A possible determination of centrality at NICA/MPD experiment using calculations of various Monte Carlo event generators are considered.
