(6) Midlands Graduate School in the Foundations of Computing Science =09=09 University of Leicester =09=09 31st March - 4th April 2003 Purpose and history The Universities of Birmingham, Leicester, and Nottingham have been collaborating since 1999 in providing introductory courses for graduate students in foundational areas of Computer Science. They are directed primarily at students in their first year of PhD studies but are open to other participants as well. More information on this initiative is available at http://www.cs.nott.ac.uk/MGS The 2003 Graduate School This year's event will take place as a one-week intense Spring School at the University of Leicester, immediately preceding the 19th British Colloquium on Theoretical Computer Science, also held in Leicester (http://www.mcs.le.ac.uk/events/bctcs19). It will consist of 10 short courses, three at the foundational level and seven at advanced level. See below for a list of topics covered. The School is organised by Neil Ghani (Leicester) and Achim Jung (Birmingham). Fees There are no fees to be paid by participants for taking part in all or some of the School's events, but students from further afar may wish to stay in residence. For this purpose we have reserved a number of rooms in University Halls which we will asign on a first-come first-serve basis. Accommodation is 45 pounds per day, including three meals and refreshments. Contact Neil Ghani (N.Ghani@mcs.le.ac.uk) if you need accommodation. Scholarships PhD students affiliated with a British university are eligible to EPRSC support towards their accommodation costs (but not travel expenditure). We intend to have the scholarship start at a minimum of 100 pounds but may be able to increase this in special cases depending on the level of demand. Please contact Achim Jung (A.Jung@cs.bham.ac.uk) directly if you need financial support.
