Joint Estonian-Latvian Theory Days at Rakari
[ In English ]
[ Eesti keeles ] [ Latviski
Estonian Computer Science Theory Days started in 2002 and have
organized biannually since then. In Latvia, there has been no such
tradition up to now. This year, we are organizing for the first time
joint Estonian-Latvian Computer Science Theory Days. The main
goal of the Theory Days is to let the theoretical computer scientists
of our two countries to get acquainted with the work of each other. In
particular, the main audience is intended to be the graduate students
in the roles of both listeners and presenters.
The event will take place near Salacgrīva
the guest house
Rakari located by the sea (map1,
from September 30 to October 3,
2010 (from Thursday afternoon to Sunday noon).
Here you can find
information about how to sign up. The registration deadline is September 16.
