A special issue of an international refereed journal containing selected full length papers
will be dedicated to the conference.
The conference budget includes a limited amount of funds for fee waivers for PhD students from
Eastern Europe presenting their work.
The conference is hosted by St. Petersburg Department of V.A. Steklov Institute of Mathematics
of the Russian Academy of Sciences which is located in the very center of St. Petersburg.
St. Petersburg is particularly beautiful in the late spring — early summer, the white nights
season. The city is surrounded by wonderful tsar parks and palaces; an excursion to one of them
will be a social program of the conference.
