A number of excursions will be offered during and after the conference. The river next to the city is bordered by picturesque hills with a major national park and a strong ethnic tradition of rock climbing, talent, individualism and freedom. An excursion to that part of the city is definitely going to occur. Other excursions demonstrating Siberian landscapes and the history of the city or how this part of the world was colonized in the 17th-18th centuries will be provided.
