On December 4, 1948, Isaak Brook together with engineer Bashir Rameev, submitted an application for the invention of a computer to the State Committee of the Council of Ministers of the USSR on the Introduction of Advanced Technology into the National Economy. The Certificate #10475, issued by the State Committee, is the first officially registered document indicating that a computer era has begun in Russia.
The track includes talks recollecting the achievements of System Programming in USSR and former Soviet Union countries, and defining the shape of challenges and new objectives of System Programming in the the near future.
While at Institute of Precise Mechanics and Computer Engineering (IPMaCE) he become a leading member of the team responsible for creating the D-68 operating system for the BESM-6 computer. Working on advaced hardware systems, Ivannikov gained extensive experience of systems programming that enabled him to make notable contributions to the development of operating systems, including the creation of new ways to organize parallel processing and programming complexes.
Ivannikov also conducted numerous research projects and was responsible for important innovations in object-oriented programming, creating new cluster technology that was implemented during the creation of the AS-6 operating system and has been used in various computational complexes and super-computers.
In 1994 he established the Academic Institute of System Programming, and served as its director since.

He worked with Cliff Jones and others on the Vienna Development Method (VDM) at IBM Laboratory Vienna (and elsewhere). Later he was involved with producing the RAISE (Rigorous Approach to Industrial Software Engineering) formal method with tool support.
Bjørner was a professor at the Technical University of Denmark (DTU) from 1965–1969 and 1976–2007, before he retired in March 2007. He was responsible for establishing the United Nations University International Institute for Software Technology (UNU-IIST), Macau, in 1992 and was its first director. His magnum opus on software engineering (three volumes) appeared in 2005/6.
To support VDM, Bjørner co-founded VDM-Europe, which subsequently became Formal Methods Europe, an organization that supports conferences and related activities. In 2003, he instigated the associated ForTIA Formal Techniques Industry Association.
Bjørner became a knight of the Order of the Dannebrog in 1985. He received a Dr.h.c. from the Masaryk University, Brno, Czech Republic in 2004. He is a Fellow of the IEEE (2004) and ACM (2005). He has also been a member of the Academia Europaea since 1989.
In 2007, a Symposium was held in Macau in honour of Dines Bjørner and Zhou Chaochen.
Software resides in domains. To obtain software that "fits" the domain we must analyse & describe the domain. The domain, for us computer scientists, as is informal - as it is for the physicists when they study "mother nature". When entities of the domain are both considered endurants, existing in space, are also considered perdurants, existing in time, then a transcendental deduction is taking place. We analyse and discuss the philosophical issues of epistemology, ontology and transcendental deduction.

Science Department at the Technion, Israel Institute of Technology, Israel
Professor Assaf Schuster has been a faculty member of the Technion Computer Science Department since 1991. He has been interested in various aspects of parallel and distributed computing, publishing more than 170 papers. His algorithms on data-race detection were implemented in Intel’s Thread Checker, and his patents on distributed shared memory were sold by the Technion. His papers triggered a rewrite of the Java Memory Model. He has built scalable production systems to handle petabytes of storage with off-the-shelf hardware. In recent years, his research group has focused on big data and scalable, real-time knowledge discovery in distributed data streams. From 2010, Prof. Schuster has also been working to establish TCE – the Technion Center for Computer Engineering, which he heads. TCE has grown to become a center of activity for about 60 faculty from the Technion and other universities in Israel and abroad, dozens of industry leaders, and hundreds of graduate students.
Following some real-world trends, the computer sciences are also following with a slow process of focus changes. Instead of the one-time offline algorithms operating on stationary data, we now see a surge of interest in online processing of streaming data. Unfortunately, the algorithms and technologies for online stream processing are lagging behind and the gap can be estimated in years of research. In this talk I will focus on Complex Event Processing (CEP), an algorithmic field whose goal is to find interesting patterns in rapid streams of events (or data). CEP is an already an industry of billions of $$s and is growing very fast. I will show that state-of-the-art algorithmic methods for CEP are fairly primitive as compared with other algorithmic fields in computer science. I will then provide an overview of recent methods we developed in an effort to bridge the gap.

Managing information in many areas such as smart city, smart industry, smart medicine, etc. will be strongly associated with fog-edge-cloud computing for the Internet of Things (IoT) and Industrial Internet of Things.
Despite many advantages of the IoT, it brings high risks of confidentiality, integrity, and availability associated with the loss of information, denial of access for a long time, information leakage, conspiracy, etc. One of the challenges is to design reliable fog-edge-cloud systems that mitigate the uncertainty of the occurrence of technical failures, data security breaches, collusion, etc.
In this talk, we discuss methods and algorithms for supporting security expectations and requirements of IoT under unknown risks that are difficult or impossible to anticipate and cannot be managed proactively. They are based on mechanisms of adjustable and adaptive security, reliability, and redundancy to cope with different user-provider preferences, workloads, system state, errors, and fog-edge-cloud properties, etc.

Yakobovsky Mikhail Vladimirovich - the deputy director for scientific work of Keldysh Institute of Applied Mathematics RAS, the corresponding member of RAS, the doctor of physical and mathematical sciences, professor.
The report is devoted to discussion of the algorithms aimed at a possibility of use of perspective computing systems of exaFLOPS and higher performance level for mathematical modeling of problems of mechanics of the continuous environment. ExaFLOPS computing systems, in view of it is expected the short period of their no-failure operation, will demand qualitatively new decisions for providing the possibility of carrying out long calculations. The algorithms providing independence of time of carrying out calculation of emergence during calculations of refusals of computing knots are considered.
