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

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.
