Project Calendar


Region Siberia and Far Eastern (5)

Activity planned and agreed in Pereslavl-Zalessky on June 1996 is:


Workshop on Information Systems.

Moscow, Presidium of RAS, Nov. 14-16 1996.
Mathematical Department of RAS.
Report will appear on WWW server RAS.

Workshop on Electronic Publishing (El-Pub-97)

Novosibirsk, Akademgorodok, April 24-26 1997.
Siberian Branch of Russian Academy of Sciences.

Workshop on LINUX

Finland, Helsinki, May 26-27 1997.
Mika Seppala
Linux - key to the net.
(information, plans, program).

To be held in Helsinki, starting Monday, May 26 and will be hosted by Mika Seppala. Duration foreseen is only two full days, though the workshop MAY be extended to 5 days. Participants expected: Both experts and beginners. You MUST send short CV's (with a focus on scientific work) in order to apply for money. The CV's must be sent to Coordinator too. Also include information on your level of knowledge and experience in Linux.

As deadline for application to NATO is already January 15, Everybody who hope to participate to let Coordinator know and to estimate cost of traveling. State cost of traveling to St.Petersburg, from where common travel to Helsinki will be arranged. It may also be that we change logistics a little if NATO supports us, and cover travel directly to Helsinki. Therefore, please also state cost of travel to Helsinki. Important that you reply fast (give estimate if no precise price of tickets is available to you).

Recall scope: Two types of participants are sought: Experts in LINUX and then (most important category) persons who will use LINUX for system administration, but do not have 'hands-on' experience. For second category instruction by experts and training using special computers will be provided.

Work performed by special workgroups.

It was decided in Pereslavl-Zalessky to form a number of working groups (WG's). Each has one or two responsible partners, chosen from the NIS partners), and progress in the area is their responsibility. Contact the working group directly if you have input for them. No need to go through Coordinator. (You may copy letters to Coordinator).

For all WG's: Please report about activity on March 1st directly to Coordinators (General and Regional), also in case you had no activity.

NOTE: There may be some errors in the above listing. Please report this and changes to Coordinator.


The first 12-month report has been submitted to INTAS, but is not yet approved. The report was delayed.

All contractors to INTAS (Western partners and Regional Coordinators will receive a copy of the report submitted to INTAS. It is the responsibility of the Regional Coordinators to copy and further distribute the report inside their region as they see fit.

The next few months will be critical for the success of the project. The next report will cover the time up to end of May 1997, and MUST show progress of a 'real' nature (not just administrative work and the like).
