  After two successful training schools, the Research Institute 
  for Symbolic Computation, Johannes Kepler University of Linz, 
  organizes the next event in the series, the Third RISC/SCIEnce 
  Training School in Symbolic Computation, in July 7--20, 2008 
  in the Castle of Hagenberg, Austria.

  The school gives an introduction to the field of symbolic 
  computation and provides training in selected symbolic 
  computation software and techniques for students and 
  researchers from various fields of sciences who are interested 
  in using symbolic computation in their work.

  Besides the courses and tutorials offered by the school, 
  the participants can attend the tutorials of the ISSAC 2008 
  conference and the tutorials and sessions of the RTA 2008 
  conference.
