                        FIRST CALL FOR PAPERS
            Andrei Ershov Fifth International Conference

        9 - 12 July 2003, Novosibirsk, Akademgorodok, Russia


The conference is held to honor the 70th anniversary of A.P. Ershov's closest 
colleague, the late professor Igor Pottosin, (1933-2001) and his outstanding 
contributions towards advancing informatics. The first four Andrei Ershov 
conferences were held in May 1991, June 1996, July 1999, and July 2001 and proved 
to be significant international events.

Andrei Ershov was one of the early Russian pioneers in the field of
theoretical and systems programming, a founder of the Siberian School 
of Computer Science. His closest colleague, Igor Pottosin, worked for the 
Siberian Branch of Russian Academy of Sciences since 1958, step by step filling 
positions from junior researcher to director of A.P.Ershov Institute of 
Informatics Systems. In recent years he headed the Laboratory of Systems 
Programming in this Institute and the Department of Programming at Novosibirsk 
State University.

I. V. Pottosin took a leading position among Russian specialists in computer 
science. It is hardly possible to overestimate his contribution to the formation 
and development of this research direction in this country. He obtained 
fundamental results in the theory of program optimization, formulated main 
principles and typical schemes of optimizing compilers, and suggested efficient 
algorithms of optimizing program transformations. One of the world's first 
optimizing compilers ALPHA,  the ALPHA-6 programming system, and the multi-
language compiling system BETA were designed and developed on the basis of these 
results and with direct participation of Igor Pottosin. In recent years he mainly 
concentrated on the problems of designing programming environments for efficient 
and reliable program construction and headed the SOKRAT project aimed at 
producing software for embedded computers. Research in program analysis and 
programming methodology was essentially inspired by this practical work, which 
greatly influenced its results. Prof. Pottosin was actively involved in the 
training of computer professionals. There is a professor, eleven Ph.D. holders, 
and hundreds of graduates among his disciples.

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 one of the goals the Conference is to meet. Improvement of the
contacts and exchange of ideas between researchers from the East and
West are further goals.


Conference topics include:

               Semantics-Based Program Processing
- program specification, transformation, and verification,
- semantics, logic and formal models of programs,
- partial evaluation, mixed computation, and abstract interpretation,
- program analysis and synthesis, 
- model checking.

              Programming Methodology and Automated Software Engineering
- object-oriented, aspect-oriented, component-based and generic programming,
- program and system construction for parallel and distributed computing,
- constraint programming,
- multi-agent technology,
- system re-engineering and reuse,
- integrated programming environments,
- software architectures,
- software development and testing,
- tools for software engineering,
- Web services in software engineering,
- program understanding and visualization.

                 Information Technologies
- database and information systems,
- knowledge-based systems and knowledge engineering,
- electronic commerce,
- digital libraries and Web publishing,
- natural language processing.

In addition to papers in the above list of topics, papers both
bridging the gap between different directions and promoting mutual 
understanding of researchers in different directions are welcome. 
Papers defining the prospects of Computer Science in the whole and 
joint West-East papers are also encouraged. 


The conference will be held in Akademgorodok (Academy town), 30 km
South from Novosibirsk, the largest city of Siberia. Akademgorodok is
located in a picturesque place near the Ob lake. It is surrounded 
with birch and pine forests and pleasant not only for work but for
recreation as well. Silence, beautiful landscape, and pure air are 
the factors promoting scientific activity and creativity.
