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

The School will be held in the small medieval hilltop town of
Bertinoro. This town is in Emilia Romagna about 50km east of Bologna
at an elevation of about 230m.  It is easily reached by train and taxi
from Bologna and is close to many splendid Italian locations such as
Ravenna, Rimini on the Adriatic coast, and the Republic of San Marino.
The School will be held in an ex-Episcopal fortress that has been
converted by the University of Bologna into a modern conference center
with computing facilities and Internet access.
