Computer Science days in Ekaterinburg (CSEdays) is a series of schools organized by the Ural Federal University, the biggest Russian university outside Moscow. The first school took place in 2010. Working language of the school is English.
The main objective of the CSEdays is to expose the students in computer science and related disciplines to the research topics usually not covered within the regular university curricula. Previous editions of the school were focused on various computer science and software engineering topics such as complexity theory, software reliability, information security and cryptography, multi-agent systems, computer networks, and graph theory & applications. The school is addressed to advanced graduate and PhD students in mathematics, computer science, and software engineering, as well as young researchers and software developers from industry.
The 7th school will be held in Ekaterinburg, Russia on August 23 – 25, 2014. The topic of the school is "Strings, Languages, Automata". The program will consist of 4 short lecture courses as well as student presentations and poster sessions. Students are encouraged to submit not only published or completed research, but also a short summary of work in progress or even a concise review of a problem area. The primary goal of submitting a paper, as we see it, is getting feedback from experts as well as school lecturers and participants.
A submission should include a two page long extended abstract (formatted in LaTeX) plus an arbitrarily long appendix. Such an appendix may include a full paper (published, submitted, or just written) and/or some extra material to accompany the abstract: proofs, tables, graphs, formal description of algorithms, etc. All submissions will be reviewed by experts and the reviews will be sent to the authors. The authors of accepted submissions are supposed to give a short talk or to present a poster at the school. Extended abstracts of accepted submissions will also be published in the internal proceedings of the school.
The school will be held immediately before the 18th International Conference on Developments in Language Theory (DLT 2014, August 26-29). Any participant of the school may attend the talks of the DLT 2014 without paying the conference registration fee.
