Year 2007' competition was held by the department of information
technologies and computing systems of the Russian Academy of Sciences,
the Federal Agency of Information Technologies, the publishing house
SK Press, and IT-expo.
The winners were determined by an council of experts headed by Sergey
Abramov, Corresponding Member of the Russian Academy of Sciences and
