The school will last for two weeks from January 19 to January 30, 2015. The SPCodingSchool is designed to promote strong interaction between students from all over the world and with different backgrounds.
To enable beginners to take part in the School, the first week will be devoted to 6 introductory mini-courses. The Second week will be devoted to more advanced topics with some overlapping of lectures.
Besides the mini-courses and tutorials, organizers of the SPCodingSchool will come from a range of open problems to be tackled by participants, in groups. The problems, with appropriate bibliography and suggestions of approach will be delivered by October 2014 and students will be stimulated to engage on them in advance. During the school, a special program will be devoted to organize the work made in those problems which we believe may give rise to new results. Mini-courses and tutorials will be given by the following outstanding researchers.
