Meeting Description: 

The 6th Russian Summer School in Information Retrieval (RuSSIR 2012)

co-organized by Yaroslavl Demidov State University and Russian 
Information Retrieval Evaluation Seminar (ROMIP) with support from the 
MUMIA network.

The mission of the RuSSIR school series is to teach students about 
modern problems and methods in information retrieval and related 
disciplines, to stimulate scientific research and collaboration in the 
field; and to create environment for informal contacts between 
scientists, students and industry professionals. RuSSIR 2012 will focus 
on multilingual information access, cross-language information 
retrieval, and machine translation.

The target audience of the school is advanced graduate and PhD 
students, post-doctoral researchers, academic and industrial 
researchers, and developers. The working language of the school is 
English. RuSSIR 2012 will offer up to seven courses and host 
approximately 150 participants.

The previous RuSSIRs took place in Ekaterinburg, Taganrog, 
Petrozavodsk, Voronezh, and Saint Petersburg.

About the Venue:

The city of Yaroslavl is the administrative center of Yaroslavl Oblast, 
located 250 km northeast of Moscow. Founded in the 11th century by 
prince Yaroslav the Wise, Yaroslavl is one of the oldest Russian cities. 
Yaroslavl belongs to the Golden Ring, a group of towns northeast of 
Moscow that have played an important role in Russian history, which 
are now called 'open air museums' and feature unique monuments of 
Russian architecture of the 12th-18th centuries. In 2010 Yaroslavl 
celebrated its 1,000th anniversary. The historical part of Yaroslavl is a 
World Heritage Site located at the picturesque confluence of the rivers 
Volga and Kotorosl.
