International Computer Science Student School
Recent Advances in Algorithms
MAY 22–26, 2017, ST. PETERSBURG
AIM OF THE SCHOOL
The school offers the unique opportunity to learn about recent breakthroughs in several domains of algorithms: from classical areas like network flow algorithms and longest paths in graphs to recently emerged areas like streaming algorithms and algorithms for high dimensional data. The lectures will be taught by the leading researchers in these areas. Each of the tutorials will provide an introduction to the area and gradually bring to the current research frontiers.

The primarily audience consists of PhD students interested in Algorithms. Bright master students, postdocs, young researchers and even faculty are also very welcome.

VENUE
The school is hosted by St. Petersburg Department of V.A. Steklov Institute of Mathematics of the Russian Academy of Sciences which is located in the very center of St. Petersburg. St. Petersburg is particularly beautiful in the late spring — early summer, the white nights season. The city is surrounded by wonderful tsar parks and palaces; an excursion to one of them will be a social program of the school.


REGISTRATION, FEES, AND DEADLINES
We can only accept a limited number of participants and we will give preference to MSc and PhD students doing research in the field of algorithms. The registration fee is going to be around 10000RUB (approximately 160EUR or 170USD). The fee includes lectures, coffee breaks, excursion, and school dinner (but does not include lunches and accommodation). Thanks to our sponsors, JetBrains and Yandex, we have a limited number of grants allowing us to reduce the registration fee by 50% for some of the participants.
