Italian Computer Science PhD granting institutions under the auspices of GRIN, organizes an annual school offering three graduate-level courses aimed at first-year PhD students in Computer Science. In addition to introducing students to timely research topics, the school is meant to promote acquaintance and collaboration among young European researchers. The 2018 edition of the School is the 24th in the series.
The school will offer 3 courses each consisting of 13 hours of lectures:

• Provable security for low level execution platforms
Prof. Mads Dam – KTH (Sweden)
• Distributed models, MapReduce and large scale algorithms
Dr. Silvio Lattanzi – Google Inc (Zurich, Switzerland)
• Elements of Quantum Computation
Dr. Herbert Wiklicky, Imperial College London (U.K.)

A final evaluation for each course is possible through a final exam or project as determined by the instructor. The daily schedule admits laboratory and/or working group activities to be organized in addition to the lectures.

The registration fee for the School is 550.00 Euro
 and includes all local expenses from the evening of 11 March to 16 March afternoon including all meals and on-site lodging in double-occupancy rooms. A reduced registration fee of 300.00 Euro is available for local students which will not use the on-site lodging facilities (it includes local expenses for the lectures, coffee breaks and lunches).

It is possible to require one additional night for the students that want to leave on Saturday the 17th. In this case the additional cost is 50 Euros.
Attendance is limited to 50 students and will be allocated on a first-come-first-served basis.
