    General comments:

    It is a 4-day course intended for PhD candidates, postdocs, company engineers and scientists. Note that is not a workshop, but a school, even though fruitful discussions are expected between attendants and lecturers. Attendants will be provided with lecture notes delivered by all lecturers.

    See the administrative INRIA official webpage for this course for possible accommodation in the Versailles region. Other accommodation possibilities exist, including in nearby Paris, e.g., close to a stop of the daily bus shuttle from Paris to INRIA (please contact the organisers to discover more). There are no accommodation facilities in the INRIA research unit in Rocquencourt itself, but there exists an administrative restaurant which will be open freely to all attendants for lunches.

    Financial support from active EU networks (Biosim, M3CSTGT,...) or other institutions (e.g. GDR MABEM of CNRS for France) may be solicited by attendants to obtain travel and accommodation facilities with refunding of produced bills for accommodation, evening meals, and train or economy class flight tickets (to be ordered reasonably in advance, and arranged with the involved networks or institutions). Contact the organisers for details.
