CALL FOR PAPERS
PSI: 10th Ershov Informatics Conference
25 - 27 August 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
