CALL FOR PARTICIPATION - CSR 2006
International Computer Science Symposium in Russia
June 8-12, 2006, St.Petersburg, Russia
Organized by St.Petersburg Department of Steklov Institute of Mathematics
*** WE STRONGLY RECOMMEND TO REGISTER BEFORE February 28, 2006 ***
CSR 2006 is the first conference in a projected series of regular events
spanning all areas of computer science.
The main part of the program of CSR 2006 consists of 65 contributed
papers (out of 279 submissions) divided into two tracks, Theory
and Application/Technology. CSR 2006 also features an opening
lecture by Stephen A. Cook and 10 invited lectures (see below).
In addition, before the conference, there will be two workshops
at the conference location.
St. Petersburg is beautiful at any time of year. The early
summer, known as the "white nights" season, is especially lovely.
The city is surrounded by wonderful tsar parks and palaces;
an excursion to one of them will be a social program of the symposium.
The preliminary program and registration information can be found
at the conference Web site.
We strongly recommend registering as soon as possible (preferably in
February). Hotels are already quite booked. Early registration
is especially important for foreign participants in order for both
you and us to complete the required official paperwork needed
to get a visa.
The symposium is sponsored by the U.S. Civilian Research & Development
Foundation and Russian Foundation for Basic Research. There is a limited
financial support for participants from Russia.
