This research school proposes a walk along the interface between discrete mathematics and computer science. It will consist in 4 main courses about groups, discrete dynamical systems, information and complexity, and combinatorics on words. It can serve as an introduction to the 4 conferences of the thematic month and connections between the corresponding topics. It will also open links towards history and art.
