Two workshops in Kazan and one in Moscow
are organized in conjunction with CSR-2010.
Pre-conference Workshop on Program Semantics, Specification and Verification:
Theory and Applications (PSSV 2010) in Kazan will be held on June 14-15.

Post-conference Workshop on High Productivity Computations (HPC 2010) in Kazan
will be held on June 21-22. It is intended to organize the discussions
about high productivity computing means and models, including but not
limited to high performance and quantum information processing.

Note also that Franco-Russian Workshop "Complexity in algorithms,
dynamics and bioinformatics" is organized in Moscow on June 13-15;
one may find it convenient to attend before CSR-2010:
Regarding this one, please contact its organizers directly.

The main accomodation site is the hotel "Korston" which offers conference
