CALL for PARTICIPATION
BACKGROUND AND OBJECTIVES
EWSCS is a series of regional-scope international winter schools held annually in Estonia. EWSCS used to be organized by the Institute of Cybernetics, a research institute of Tallinn University of Technology. It is now organized by the Department of Software Science.
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'17 is the twenty second event of the series.
The schools' scientific programme consists of short courses by renowned specialists and a student session.
Courses of EWSCS'17
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.
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 Lahemaa Nature Centre of the Lahemaa National Park, a museum in the Palmse Manor, and Park Hotel Palmse in former distillery building.
The school will organize a bus from Tallinn to Palmse and back.
To apply for a place, fill in the online participation application form.
The deadline for application and submission of student talk abstracts (see the instruction) is ASAP, at the latest on 26 February 2017. We will notify within a day from application.
Admitted participants are entitled and expected to attend the courses and student session of the school. They will also receive a memory stick with the course material and access to additional materials on the school website.
