This workshop will include Sage tutorials for newcomers, with a slant
toward algebraic combinatorics, as well as coding sprints for
developers.
Tentative Schedule

To organize it, it would be helpful to have a rough idea of how many
people will attend. If you are considering to join, please add
yourself to the list below, or drop us a line. At this point, it is
likely that we won't have much funding, except for people from
American institutions through our NSF grant. So please mention if you
would need funding for lodging and travel, but don't plan too much on
it!
* Monday-Wednesday: coding sprints

* Thursday-Friday: tutorial for newcomers, with a slant toward algebraic combinatorics

Newcomers are in fact welcome to join from the beginning of the week;
there won't be specific events organized for them then, but we will be
available for questions and discussions while they get through
tutorials on their own or work on their personnal projects.

Access
------

The workshop will be held at the Faculté d'Orsay, probably in the `math department <http://www.math.u-psud.fr/acces.php>`_.
It's 45 minutes from Paris downtown by local trains, and a five minute walk from the hotel (see below).

Projects
--------

See the `Projects list <http:/combinat/FPSAC13_projects>`_.

Registration
------------

Participation is free. To register,
please fill in `this poll <http://framadate.org/3p4vprml76v9r3vz>`_ so
that we can plan ahead for rooms, coffee breaks, ... and also to
optimize the lodging. Please send us your e-mail address as well so
that we can get in touch with you as the workshop gets closer.

Lodging
-------

We have negociated a reduced price at the nearby
`Residhome Appart Hotel from Bures-sur-Yvette <http://www.residhome.com/reservation1-residence-hoteliere-aparthotel-buressuryvette-183.html>`_.
The rate is of 66€ per night (56€ 5 nights or more) for a two person
studio (double bed or twin bed). There is also a reduced rate of 106€
(90€ for 5 nights or more) for a four person apartment (two double
beds; probably not so convenient). Breakfast is not included; see the
web site for the amenities.

You should reserve your room from the link above. To benefit from the
reduced price you just need to mention that you come for the "Sage
Days 49 conference" in the "Question" open field. The price reduction
won't show up on the web but that's ok: you will get the reduction
when you will make the final payment at the counter.

To reduce the expenses you are strongly encouraged to find a room mate
to share a double room with. In particular, for those person that will
get funding from us for lodging, we will most likely reimburse on the
basis of 33 euros per night in order to support more participants.

*Caveat: there are only a limited number of rooms with twin beds, and
they tend to be booked early*. Therefore you are strongly encouraged
to reserve your room as soon as possible, even if you are not
absolutely sure about the dates. You can cancel your reservation later
on (see their web site for details). And in the worst case some other
participant is likely to be happy to take over your reservation.

Funding
-------

For participants coming from universities in the United States, there
is funding from our Sage-Combinat NSF grant. Please email Anne
Schilling (email anne at math.ucdavis.edu) with your CV and an estimated budget. The deadline
for this is March 30,
2013. Later applications will be considered as long as funds are
available.

For now this all you need to do to request funding.
