Kharkov is the second-largest city of Ukraine. Located in the north-east of the country, it is the largest city of the Slobozhanshchyna historical region. The city was founded in 1654 and was a major centre of Ukrainian culture in the Russian Empire. Kharkov became the first city in Ukraine to acknowledge the Soviet power in December 1917 and becoming later the capital of Ukrainian Soviet Socialist Republic. Kharkov remained the capital of the Ukrainian SSR until January 1934, when it was moved to Kiev.
Kharkov is a major cultural, scientific, educational, transport and industrial centre of Ukraine, with 60 scientific institutes, 30 establishments of higher education, 6 museums, 7 theatres and 80 libraries. A well-known landmark of Kharkov is the Freedom Square (Ploshcha Svobody), which is currently the sixth largest city square in Europe, and the 12th largest square in the world.
During the conference a sightseeing tour about Kharkov will be organized for participants of ASM-2013.
