The conference will be held at Yaroslavl State University. Accommodation (single and twin bedrooms, standard or luxury) will be available in the hotel "Ibis". It is possible to use the sites and to find information about this hotel. All participants have to book rooms themselves. Please note that the price will considerably decrease if you pay a room more than a month before the conference beginning. If you need help you can contact the local organizing committee.

Yaroslavl is one of the cities of the so-called "Golden Ring of Russia", which have been called 'open air museums' and feature unique monuments of Russian architecture. The cultural program in Yaroslavl will include some excursions. One of the conference days (perhaps after the morning session on August 24) the bus city tour and the Volga River cruise with a visit to Tolgsky Monastery of the 14th century will be organized. After the conference we can organize 2-3-day tour over the cities of "Golden Ring of Russia': Rostov, Ivanovo, Suzdal, Vladimir, and Moscow. To participate in this tour an advance order and payment is needed. Please contact Dr. V.Bachurin for details.
