Sixth International Andrei Ershov Memorial Conference
27-30 June 2006, Novosibirsk, Akademgorodok, Russia


The conference is held to honor the 75th anniversary of academician
Andrei Ershov (1931-1988) and his outstanding contributions towards
advancing informatics. The first five conferences were held in 1991,
1996, 1999, 2001 and 2003, respectively, and
proved to be significant international events.

Andrei Ershov was one of the early Russian pioneers in the field of
the theory of programming and systems programming, a founder
of the Siberian Computer Science School. In 1974 he was nominated as a
Distinguished Fellow of the British Computer
Society. In 1981 he received the Silver Core Award for services
rendered to IFIP. Andrei Ershov's brilliant speeches were always
in the focus of public attention. Especially notable was his lecture on
"Aesthetic and human factor in programming" presented at
the AFIPS Spring Joint Computer Conference in 1972. Andrei Ershov
was not only an extremely gifted scientist, teacher and
fighter for his ideas, but also a bright and many-sided personality.
He wrote poetry, translated the works of R. Kipling and other
English poets, and enjoyed playing guitar and singing. Everyone who
had the pleasure of knowing Andrei Ershov and working
with him will always remember his great vision, eminent achievements,
and generous friendship.

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 another aim of the conference. Improvement
of the contacts and exchange of ideas between researchers from the
East and West are further goals.
