São Paulo School of Advanced Science on Algorithms, Combinatorics and Optimization (SPSAS-ACO)

The school was organized by the Theory of Computing, Combinatorics, and Optimization group of the Department of Computer Science at IME-USP and made possible by the São Paulo Research Foundation (FAPESP) under the SPSAS program.

The school aimed at providing an opportunity for graduante and undergraduate students as well as young researchers to get together and attend advanced courses and talks on current topics in the fields of algorithms, combinatorics, and optimization.

In the two weeks of the school, 11 advanced courses and 7 talks were delivered by renowned researchers from abroad and from Brazil. The school was intended to be a forum for discussions and new collaborations.

Besides the courses and talks, a number of poster sessions were planned. Supporting material for the courses was provided by the lecturers, and students worked on the material and on exercises. Each of the lecturers had an assistant, who assisted the students during classwork.
