CALL for PARTICIPATION

BACKGROUND AND OBJECTIVES

EWSCS is a series of regional-scope international winter schools held annually in Estonia. EWSCS are organized by Institute of Cybernetics, a research institute of Tallinn University of Technology.

The main objective of EWSCS is to expose Estonian, Baltic, and Nordic graduate students in computer science (but also interested students from elsewhere) to frontline research topics usually not covered within the regular curricula. The working language of the schools is English.

EWSCS'16 is the twenty first event of the series.


PROGRAMME

The schools' scientific programme consists of short courses by renowned specialists and a student session.

Courses of EWSCS'16

The purpose of the student session is to give students an opportunity to present their work (typically, thesis work) and get feedback. Registrants are invited to propose short talks (20 min) on topics of theoretical computer science, broadly understood. The selection will be based on abstracts of 150-400 words (see the instruction).

The social programme consists of an excursion and a conference dinner.


VENUE

Palmse is a small settlement 80 kms to the east from Tallinn in the county of Lääne-Viru. It is renowned for a large manor that used to belong to the von Pahlen family, today hosting the visitors' center of the Lahemaa National Park, a museum, and a hotel.

The school will organize a bus from Tallinn to Palmse and back.
