Call For Papers

PSI 2019

The Ershov Informatics Conference (the PSI Conference Series, 12th 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 Russian informatics community and its international counterparts, as well as between established scientists and younger researchers.

PSI 2019 will be a part of the Computer Science Summer in Russia (, which will also include the International Computer Science Symposium CSR'19, a workshop track, and a summer school in Computer Science for students.
