Venue
The Symposium will be held on board a comfortable boat "Georgy Zhukov". The cruise will start in St.-Petersburg at 8 p.m. on July 16, 2011. The cruise route includes the Volga river, the fascinating lakes of the Russian North (the White Lake, Onega, and Ladoga), unique ensembles of Kizhi and Valaam, as well as some old Russian towns, such as Yaroslavl, Gorodets, and Nizhny Novgorod where it will arrive in the evening of July 22. The format of the Symposium and the informal atmosphere of the river cruise will stimulate active discussions and links between scholars and will give a brilliant opportunity for the participants to get familiar with the Russian history and nature. A social program for the participants and accompanying persons will include, besides sightseeing and tours on the cruise route, music concerts aboard, and symposium dinner. A special lady's program is intended to fill up the time of the accompanying persons during scientific sessions.
