    Scientific program

    The scientific area of the conference includes: theoretical issues of discrete mathematics related to the problem of solvability, complexity evaluation of algorithms, automata theory, graph theory, and applications in cryptography, information networks, and other fields of computer science.

    The conference will be organized in sections:
    • Graph Theory
    • Automata Theory
    • Combinatorics on Words
    • Decidability Problems
    • Complexity
    • Networking Games

    The Symposium is devoted to an important and dynamically developing mathematical field - discrete mathematics. The topic of the symposium includes theoretical questions of discrete mathematics related to the problem of decidability, complexity evaluation of algorithms, automata theory, graph theory, and applications in cryptography, information networks, and other fields of computer science. This series of scientific events began as part of an international collaboration of Russian and Finnish scientists in discrete mathematics and related fields but has long been an international event in terms of participants. The first Russian-Finnish Symposium on discrete mathematics was held in Russia in Saint-Petersburg in 2011, and the second one in Finland in Turku in 2012. In 2014, the third Symposium was held in Petrozavodsk, the fourth Symposium was held in 2017 in Turku, the fifth Symposium was held in Veliky Novgorod in 2019, and finally, the sixth Symposium was held in Finland in 2021.
    This Symposium will discuss new results in various fields of discrete mathematics: combinatorial analysis, graph theory, automata theory, probability problems in discrete mathematics, and game-theoretic models on graphs. The Symposium will contribute to solving problems of combinatorics of words, calculating the complexity of algorithms for solving tropical linear systems, finding optimal flows in networks, job shop scheduling, and finding limit distributions of the main characteristics of random graphs. A wide range of applications in various fields will also be discussed.

    School of young scientists "Modern problems of discrete mathematics" will be held.

    The organisers plan to publish the best papers in the leading journal in this field.

    Pre-registration and abstracts submission

    To register for the symposium fill out the on-line registration form no later than February 28, 2022.

    If you wish to present a talk, please send an extended abstract of the talk (in a LATEX or TEX file, in English, Extended abstracts template) no later than February 28, 2022 to e-mail:

    The only working language of the meeting is English.
    Acceptance of talks will be announced by March 31, 2022.

    Social Events

    The social activities will include a welcome party, a symposium dinner, and excursions.
    More information about the Social Events will be given during the symposium.

    Registration Fee

    The registration fee is 100 EUR by person and covers symposium dinner, coffee breaks, and the booklet of abstracts. It doesn't include excursion.

    The registration fee should be paid by cash at the time of registration.

    Visa/entry to Russia

    If you need a visa to enter to Russia you have two options:

    1) You can apply for a visa in the ordinary way.

    2) As RuFiDim2022 is a satellite event of ICM2022 (https://icm2022.org/) in St. Petersburg, you can get visa-free entry by registering and paying additional registration fee for ICM2022:

    According to the Order of the Russian Federation of 24 September 2016, the International Congress of Mathematicians in St. Petersburg (ICM2022) is included in the list of international events which do not require a visa to enter the territory of the Russian Federation.

    By completing the registration procedure on the website (https://icm2022.org/) and paying the registration fee, the participant is able to get accreditation with visa-free entry to take a part in the Congress and the satellite events.
    The application for accreditation in the Personal Account will appear in February 2022.
    For updated information, please see the website of the Congress https://icm2022.org/


    Petrozavodsk, the capital of the Republic of Karelia, is situated on the shores of great and beautiful Onego Lake, 400 km to the North from Saint-Petersburg. The city is the largest University and cultural centre in the North-West Russia.

    Petrozavodsk has excellent transport connections with Saint-Petersburg and Moscow (comfortable night trains). There are evening trains from Saint-Petersburg to Petrozavodsk and back (departure at 18.00, arrival at 22.50).
