FSFLA 2011

The School offers a broad and intensive series of lectures on various formal language topics and at different levels, addressed to advanced undergraduate, graduate students and anyone interested in the field. They can choose their preferred courses according to their interests and background. Instructors are top names in their respective subjects. The School intends to help students initiate their career in research.


Undergraduate and graduate students from around the world. Most appropriate degrees include: Computer Science and Mathematics. Other students (for instance, from Linguistics, Electrical Engineering, Molecular Biology or Logic) are welcome too provided they have a good background in discrete mathematics.

The School is appropriate also for people more advanced in their career who want to keep themselves updated on developments in the field.

There will be no overlap in the schedule of the courses.

The previous event was SSFLA 2011 (http://grammars.grlmc.com/ssfla2011/).



On a voluntary basis, within 6 months after the end of the School, students will be expected to draft an individual or jointly-authored research paper on a topic covered during the classes under the guidance of the lecturing staff.

Please mention FSFLA 2011 and your full name in the subject. A receipt will be provided on site. Bank transfers should not involve any expense for the School. Students may be refunded only in the case when a course gets cancelled due to the unavailability of the instructor.

For early reduced rates, please notice that the date that counts is the date of the arrival of the fees to the School's account.

People registering on site at the beginning of the School must pay in cash. For the sake of local organization, however, it is much recommended to complete the registration and the payment earlier.


Students will be delivered a certificate stating the courses attended, their contents, and their duration. Those participants who will choose to be involved in a research paper will receive an additional certificate at the completion of the task, independently on whether the paper will finally get published or not.
