Date: 27-30 June 2006
Location: Novosibirsk, Akademgorodok, Russia
Deadline: 23 January 2006

The conference is held to honor the 75th anniversary of academician Andrei Ershov (1931?1988) and his outstanding contributions towards advancing informatics. The first five conferences were held in 1991, 1996, 1999, 2001 and 2003, respectively, and proved to be significant international events.

Andrei Ershov was one of the early Russian pioneers in the field of the theory of programming and systems programming, a founder of the Siberian Computer Science School. In 1974 he was nominated as a Distinguished Fellow of the British Computer Society. In 1981 he received the Silver Core Award for services rendered to IFIP. Andrei Ershov's brilliant speeches were always in the focus of public attention. Especially notable was his lecture on ?Aesthetic and human factor in programming? presented at the AFIPS Spring Joint Computer Conference in 1972. Andrei Ershov was not only an extremely gifted scientist, teacher and fighter for his ideas, but also a bright and many-sided personality. He wrote poetry, translated the works of R. Kipling and other English poets, and enjoyed playing guitar and singing. Everyone who had the pleasure of knowing Andrei Ershov and working with him will always remember his great vision, eminent achievements, and generous friendship.

The aim of the conference is to provide a forum for the presentation and in-depth discussion of advanced research directions in computer science. For a developing science, it is important to work out consolidating ideas, concepts and models. Movement in this direction is another aim of the conference. Improvement of the contacts and exchange of ideas between researchers from the East and West are further goals.

Authors are invited to submit an extended abstract, to arrive before January 23, 2006. For more information, see http://www.iis.nsk.su/PSI06
