European Control Conference (ECC 2020) to be held in beautiful Saint Petersburg, Russia, on May 12-15, 2020. Saint Petersburg is located in the mouth of Neva river near the Finnish Gulf of the Baltic Sea. There are daily flights of major international carriers to the International airport "Pulkovo" of St. Petersburg. It also can be reached from Helsinki, Finland by plane (0.5 hours) or by train (3 hours).
Saint Petersburg (the former capital of Russia) with about 5 millions inhabitants is recognized as one of the most beautiful cities in the world. Various guided tours over Saint Petersburg and suburbs including visits to Tsars' palaces and museums will be organized during both the Conference days and the weekend. In addition to sightseeing tours we are planning to organize historical scientific tours including visits to historical buildings of Saint Petersburg University and Russian Academy of Sciences. You will have unique possibility to see houses where L.Euler, P.Chebyshev, A.M. Lyapunov, A.A. Markov, S. Kovalevskaya lived and worked, as well as the L. Euler's tomb.
In May-June during the top tourist season called “White Nights” the city shows its special charm. This is the time when guests and citizens are fascinated with magnificent architectonics ensembles of palaces and temples, the streets and the squares, granite embankments and raising bridges across the Neva River and its tributaries day and night. Whenever you visit St.Petersburg, you will never get tired of admiring the unique architecture of regular and landscape gardens and parks, out-of-town palaces of Pushkin (Tsarskoe Selo), Pavlovsk, Peterhof (Petrodvorets), Gatchina, and Lomonosov (Oranienbaum). So make your plans to stay over the weekend. Enjoy beauties of magnificent Saint Petersburg.
ECC 2020 will be held in the heart of the city at ITMO University, one of the leading universities of Russia in the areas of information technologies, automatic control and robotics.
