In this edition of the school the following two courses was given:

  1. Differential Calculus over Commutative Algebras and Smooth Manifolds (suggested to beginners).
  2. Infinite Jets and Diffieties (suggested to more experienced participants).
Diplomas of participation in the School were handed to all participants. Moreover, there were examinations for all courses, which were organized as follows. For each course students received a list of examination problems. To pass an examination one had to solve reasonably large number of problems. Students having passed an examination received (or will receive) a diploma certifying this fact. Students having not passed all examinations yet, can do this by email.
