Research Digest 2022

Annual digest of the research activities of the Faculty of Computer Science.






Other papers by the staff and students of the Faculty can be found here.

On 16–20 May Professor Ivan Arzhantsev presented a course Cox Rings with Applications in Algebraic Geometry at the Invariants in Algebraic Geometry spring school in Dijon, France. At the same school Kirill Shakhmatov gave a talk Unipotent group actions on complete toric varieties.

On 19 July German Magaj presented his poster Geometric and topological properties of the internal representation of neural networks at the Young Topologists Meeting 2022 in Copenhagen, Denmark.

On 18–23 September the researchers of the Laboratory on Algebraic Transformation Groups presented at the conference Algebraic Groups, their Friends and Relations at the St. Petersburg Department of Steklov Mathematical Institute of Russian Academy of Sciences. Ivan Arzhantsev presented an invited talk Tits-Type Alternative Automorphism Groups, while Alexander Perepechko gave a talk Automorphism Groups of Rigid Affine Surfaces: the Identity Component.


On 14–18 February, the first international Winter School on Software Engineering took place. A total of 837 participants from all over the world registered for the school. The school included lectures by representatives of the Schaffhausen Institute of Technology, IT University of Copenhagen, JetBrains, AliExpress, University of Liverpool, and other representatives of academia and the industry. Recorded lectures of the school are available.

On 25 February the annual CERN workshop on high energy physics for high school students was held. It was organised by LAMBDA researchers Fedor Ratnikov and Denis Derkach.

On 25–26 May the first part of ABZ Meeting 2022 online conference was held. Maria Poptsova and Alan Herbert, reseach adviser of the international bioinformatics laboratory, helped to organise the event along Molecules, RNA Society, International Journal of Molecular Sciences, and InsideOutBio. 2501 participants from 24 countries took part in the conference. The second part of the event is planned to take place in September.

On 1–3 Septemer an international conference Computer Methods of Cognitome Analysis took place. It was held by the International Laboratory of Algebraic Topology and Its Applications. Programme and recorded lectures of the conference are available.

On 1–3 November the first autumn conference and school on machine learning Fall into ML took place. It was organised by the International Laboratory of Stochastic Algorithms and High-Dimensional Inference and the Laboratory of Methods for Big Data Analysis with the support of HSE AI Centre and the Russian Science Foundation. Programme of the school and conference, and recorded lectures are available.

New departments and projects

In March, a joint department with Sber opened at the Faculty. It is headed by Alexay Masutin, who is also the head of the HSE AI Center.

In June, the Faculty of Computer Science has opened a joint department with Tinkoff. The department courses will enrol about 80 students annually, who will get internships at Tinkoff, with the best-achieving students invited for interview at Tinkoff. The department is headed by Andrey Ivanov.Polyhedral products in topology, geometry and combinatorics (Ivan Limonchenko)

We congratulate our colleagues who have successfully defended their dissertations in the Dissertation Council in Computer Science.
