3rd International Computer Science Symposium in Russia (CSR 2008)

Moscow, Russia, June 7–12, 2008

Organizers: Dorodnicyn Computing Centre of Russian Academy of Sciences, Institute for System Programming of Russian Academy of Sciences, Moscow State University, Moscow Institute of Open Education, Institute of New Technologies

CSR 2008 is the third conference in a series of regular events started with CSR 2006 in St. Petersburg (see LNCS 3967) and CSR 2007 in Ekaterinburg (see LNCS 4649). It intends to reflect the broad scope of international cooperation in computer science. CSR 2008 consists of two tracks: Theory Track and Applications and Technology Track. Two special sessions Andrej Muchnik in Memoriam and Teaching Computer Science and a satellite Workshop on Algebra, Combinatorics, and Complexity are held.
