Now we form a collection of datasets for comparative research on the site. You can find it in the section “Resources”. We welcome any new information and links on the subject (see our e-mail address above). In addition, in this section you can also submit application to create an account on the LCSR terminal server.

Terminal server is a very powerful computer. Its desktop is available for less powerful or obsolete models. The server provides computing resources via remote access, such as CPU time, main storage, and disk space. It runs on the free software platform (OS Ubuntu, R-commander, emacs). If you use R for data analysis and your own computer is not powerful enough to process large datasets, you can send a request for us according to the form posted in the section ”Resources” and then you will forget about all technical problems.

We welcome any suggestions concerning development of our site and information for placement. If you have visited an interesting meeting, conference, or any other event, or you want to share impressions about a remarkable book you have read, or you have got a new publication, or you have met a world-famous scholar, please, send us a short article and and pictures of the event , and we will post them on the site. Believe us, it is very interesting and important not only for you!
