News - Best Paper Awards 
Yandex, the largest resource in Russian Internet, has established Yandex Best
Paper Awards and Yandex Best Student Paper Awards for the CSR series. The awards
will be granted separately for the best papers/best student papers in Theory
Track and Applications and Technology Track; the papers to be awarded will be
selected by the corresponding Program Committee. The inauguration of Yandex
Awards will form a part of the Business Meeting of CSR 2007 along with the
presentations of the first four awarded papers.

Aims and scope
CSR 2007 is the second conference in a series of regular events started 
with CSR 2006 in St Petersburg (see LNCS 3967). It intends to reflect 
the broad scope of international cooperation in computer science. CSR 2007 
consists of two tracks: Theory Track and Applications and Technology Track. 
Typical areas of these tracks include:

Theory Track:
    * algorithms, protocols, and data structures;
    * complexity and cryptography;
    * formal languages, automata and their applications to computer science;
    * computational models and concepts;
    * proof theory and applications of logic to computer science. 

Applications and Technology Track:
    * programming and languages;
    * computer architecture and hardware design;
    * symbolic computing and numerical applications;
    * application software;
    * artificial intelligence;
    * databases and knowledge bases;
    * information retrieval and search;
    * formal methods and verification;
    * constraint programming;
    * software development and testing;
    * Web services. 

Invited speakers and the opening lecture
Invited speakers:
    * Scott Aaronson (Waterloo, University of Waterloo)
    * Rajeev Alur (Philadelphia, University of Pennsylvania)
    * Peter Druschel (Saarbruecken, Max Plank Institute for Software Systems)
    * Ziyad Hanna (Intel, Haifa)
    * Alexei Miasnikov (Montreal, McGill University)
    * Geraud Senizergues (Bordeaux, Universite Bordeaux I)
    * Geoff Sutcliffe (Coral Gables, University of Miami) 

The opening lecture will be given by Yuri Gurevich (Redmond, Microsoft Research)

Authors are invited to submit an extended abstract (not a full paper) of at most
10 pages. Please follow the instructions for LNCS authors and use the standard
LNCS class file llncs.cls.

Proofs and other material omitted due to space constraints can be put into 
a clearly marked appendix to be read at discretion of the referees. Papers 
must present original (and not previously published) research. Simultaneous 
submissions to journals or other conferences with published proceedings 
are not allowed.

Submissions are to be made via EasyChair, the submission server is now
open at http://www.easychair.org/CSR2007/

The proceedings of the symposium will appear in Springer's LNCS series. Authors
of selected papers from Theory Track will be invited to submit a journal version
to a special issue of "Theory of Computing Systems".
