UrFU to host planning seminar for 2014 World Cup in programming

UrFU will hold a seminar on Saturday for the planning of the 2014 World Cup international programming championship.

Seminar organizers are looking for ways to enhance the appeal of Yekaterinburg as a tourist destination in preparation for the international programming championship. Discussion will focus on challenges associated with the arrival of thousands of international visitors for the 2014 World Cup.

The seminar will only be open to current or prospective graduate students in the university's Institute of Humanities and Arts.

Ultimately, organizers hope that Yekaterinburg's cultural tourism appeal will be enhanced by the time of the 2014 World Cup that participants will want to return to the city as recreational visitors.
