The organizers of the conference are N.N. Krasovskii Institute of Mathematics and Mechanics of Ural Branch of Russian Academy of Sciences, Ural Federal University named after the first President of Russia B.N. Yeltsin and ООО "Адаптивные решения" (Adaptive Solutions Ltd.). The conference is dedicated to Professor Vyacheslav A. Belonogov in the occasion of his 80th birthday and to Professor Vitaly A. Baransky in the occasion of his 70th birthday. The topic of the conference includes all branches of group theory, graph theory, automata and formal language theory and algorithm theory. The official language of the conference is English.

All scientific activities will take place in the recreation area Ivolga which is located near Yekaterinburg. To get this place from Yekaterinburg buses will be provided by G2A2-Organizers (see Travel for details). For more information about accommodation, see Accommodation. For photos of Ivolga, see here.
