      The FoCAS Summer School is aimed at students and researchers who share interest in the theoretical, practical, and technological issues related to collective adaptive systems. It will be an active and participative summer school with great social events and networking opportunities, and it requires attendance for the full summer school week. The main focus will be the case studies, designed to deepen students understanding on relevant aspects of collective adaptive systems, as well as stimulating a maximum interaction with exchange of knowledge and experiences.
