IMPORTANT WARNING:  Scam / Phishing / SMiShing ! Note that ill-intentioned people may be trying to contact some of participants by email or phone to get money and personal details, by pretending to be part of the staff of our conference center (CIRM).  CIRM and the organizers will NEVER contact you by phone on this issue and will NEVER ask you to pay for accommodation/ board / possible registration fee in advance. Any due payment will be taken onsite at CIRM during your stay.

The school will contain 4 lectures of 2×1h30, each one on the main topic of each of the 4 following weeks; here are the tentative lecturers: Anthony Genevois (Montpellier) for GAGTA (about geometry group and the link with metric graph theory), Jarkko Kari (Turku) for CSyDySi (about cellular automata or tilings), Sylvain Périfel (Paris) for RIC (about circuit complexity), Narad Rampersad (Manitoba) for COWBOL (about the algorithmic study of morphic words and substitutions).

Each end of afternoon, participants will be proposed an exercise session on the topic of the morning lecture, as well as a practical session on computers. Among the possible topics: mathematics in Sage (possible organizers: Paul Mercat, Thierry Monteil), Walnut (possible organizer: Narad Rampersad), Golly (possible organizer: Ilkka Törmä). . . Additionnally, the participants will be given two historical talks: one on the history of a mathematical subject (possible lecturer: Alexander Bufetov, Jean-Yves Briend), and one on the history of a computer-science subject (possible lecturer: Alexander Shen). Finally, some slots will be devoted to young participants presenting their own ongoing research, in 15 minutes, in order to encourage exchange between them.
