The school is organized as a set of lectures held by internationally renown experts from the different disciplines concerning IE themes. These lectures are explicitly meant to address interdisciplinary issues and will introduce common goals, needs and problems of the different approaches. Demo sessions on current IE technologies and systems will be also held at the school.
