All the professors in the programme will be allowed to supervise students' work. Students: Candidate students for the programme are welcome from around the world. Most appropriate previous degrees of students include: Computer Science, Mathematics and Linguistics. Students are assumed either to have a certain background in discrete mathematics or to be ready to get it by April 2002. According to the expected programme's budget, more than half of the accepted students will be funded, so that their accommodation and living expenses while in Spain will be covered by the programme. These conditions could be improved, at the programme chairman's discretion and depending on the definite availability of resources, in the case of students from Eastern European countries and others.
