The School

The "Spring School of Young Researchers on Mathematical Computer Science" takes place each year since 1996 in a different city to gather young researchers who work on mathematical computer science.

The main goal of this school is to participate in a high-level education for young PhD students, which is complementary to the one they have at their universities. This can be an update in some areas of their research, or also an opening towards new topics. By showing them the state of the art in some subjects which are close to their speciality, we bring them tools to adapt better to various environments (which is useful for example before moving to postdoc), and contribute to encourage their mobility.

The book prepared for the School and published by CNRS Éditions is ready:
