The consortium of Italian Computer Science PhD granting institutions under the auspices of GRIN, organizes an annual school offering three graduate-level courses aimed at first-year PhD students in Computer Science. In addition to introducing students to timely research topics, the school is meant to promote acquaintance and collaboration among young European researchers. The 2014 edition of the School is the 20th in the series.
The school will offer 3 courses each consisting of 13 hours of lectures:
  • Big Data Analysis of Patterns in Media Content
    Nello Cristianini, University of Bristol (UK)
  • An Introduction to Probabilistic and Quantum Programming
    Ugo Dal Lago, University of Bologna (Italy)
  • Development of dynamically evolving and self-adaptive software
    Carlo Ghezzi, Politecnico di Milano (Italy)
A final evaluation for each course is possible through a final exam or project as determined by the instructor. The daily schedule admits laboratory and/or working group activities to be organized in addition to the lectures. The registration fee for the School is 550.00 Euro and includes all local expenses from the evening of 2 March to 7 March afternoon including all meals and on-site lodging in double-occupancy rooms. A reduced registration fee of 300.00 Euro is available for local students which will not use the on-site lodging facilities (it includes local expenses for the lectures, coffee breaks and lunches). It is possible to require one additional night for the students that want to leave on Saturday the 8th. In this case the additional cost is 45 Euro for a single room, 40 Euro for a double room.
Attendance is limited to 50 students and will be allocated on a first-come-first-served basis.
