CALL FOR PAPERS
PSI: 10th Ershov Informatics Conference
25 – 27 February 2015, Innopolis, Kazan, Russia
The Ershov Informatics Conference (the PSI Conference Series, 10th edition) is the premier international forum in Russia for research and applications in computer, software and information sciences. The conference brings together academic and industrial researchers, developers and users to discuss the most recent topics in the field. PSI provides an ideal venue for setting up research collaborations between the rapidly growing Russian informatics community and its international counterparts, as well as between established scientists and younger researchers.

There are three categories of submissions:
* Regular papers describing fully developed work and complete results (15 pages / 30 minute talks).
* Short papers reporting on interesting work in progress and/or preliminary results (9 pages / 15 minute talks).
* Systemandexperimentalpapersdescribing implementation or evaluation of experimental systems and
containing a link to a working system (7 pages / 10 minute presentations).
* Present original contributions that have not been previously published and are not being submitted to another publication.
* Clearly state the problem being addressed, the goal of the work, the results achieved, and the relation to other work.
* Be in good-quality English, in a form that can be immediately published without revision.
* Be sent electronically, as a PDF file formatted according to Springer LNCS Instructions for Authors: http://www.springeronline.com) through the submissions link to the conference website
no later than February 23, 2015.
It is permissible to include or link to an appendix listing detailed results or supporting data that do not fit within the page limits, as long as the paper can be evaluated without reading this appendix.
At least one author of each accepted paper must register, attend the conference and present the paper.
Preliminary proceedings will be available at the conference. Final versions of invited and accepted papers will be published by Springer-Verlag after the conference in the Lecture Notes in Computer Science series. Proceedings of previous PSIs are volumes 1181, 1755, 2244, 2890, 4378, 5947 and 7162 of LNCS.
PSI 2015 will take place in the Korston conference hall in Kazan, one of the oldest, largest and most beautiful cities in Russia, with a rich multicultural heritage and architectural treasures recognized as a UNESCO World Heritage Site. Kazan was recently noted by TripAdvisor as one of the destination on the rise. A social and cultural program will enable participants and companions to discover the beauty of Kazan. Pre- and post-conference tours are available upon request.
You can fly directly to Kazan through Moscow or directly from a number of international destinations such as Helsinki. Trains are also available from Moscow.
