CSIT will be a forum for presentation of new results in research, development, and applications in computing and information. The organizers expect both practitioners and theorists to attend. The workshop will consist of regular sessions with technical contributions reviewed and selected by an international program committee, invited talks by leading experts, tutorials, and special sections like industrial programs and posters on ongoing research projects in Eastern European countries.
Workshop provides special sections to Russian Foundation for Basic Research (RFBR) contributions as well as Ph.D. students contributions. Selected presentations and contributions are to be identified for development into full proceeding papers. Papers with student as a primary author will be specially considered.
The submissions will be judged not only for scientific quality but also for suitability as a basis for broader discussion.
