Winter schools:  There are two winter schools taking place during weeks 48 (starting on Monday, Nov. 26) and 49 (starting on Monday, Dec.  3) . During these weeks, the courses stop and are replaced by the schools, which last the whole week. Topics will be announced later on.

Pre-course meeting: A (mandatory) pre-course meeting will take place on Monday, September 10, 2018 at 9.30am, Amphi B. This date is tentative and will be confirmed later on. The general organization of the year and a description of the courses will be provided.

Schedule: Courses start September 10 at 1:30pm. Autumn holidays are October 27-November 4. Winter holidays are December 22-January 6. Exams will be held on week 3 (starting Monday Jan. 14), for a subset of courses. The detailed schedule will be available on a public web-page (an Inria pad). This page will be read-only and updated on a regular basis, check it often.

Validation: To obtain their degree, CS Master students must complete 60 credits including the internship (30 credits), two winter schools (3 credits each) and four courses (4 credits each) in the above list. A typical choice is 6 courses, 2 schools and the internship; the extra courses can be chosen either in the CS courses or in the other departments. To meet the quality requirements of our program, the course choices must be approved by the academic tutor and the head of the Master 2 program. Administrative registration is mandatory.
