The 9th joint meeting of the European Software Engineering Conference and the ACM SIGSOFT Symposium on the Foundations of Software Engineering will take place in Saint Petersburg, Russia — one of the most beautiful cities in the world, the former Imperial capital of Russia, filled with architectural, artistic and cultural treasures. Held bi-annually, ESEC/FSE is an internationally renowned forum for researchers, practitioners, and educators to present and discuss the most recent innovations, trends, experiences, and challenges in the field of software engineering.

The conference venue is a bit tricky to find. The entrance is not from the river, but from Kazanskaya street 3a. When heading from the Nevsky prospect, you pass one building on the right, then a little park, and then turn right just before the second building on the right, walking along a fence. For you convenience here is a map with a walking route from Petro Palace and Atlantic (from Petro Palace both green and blue routes work).
