- Italian as default spoken languages, English and French on request; books and documents in English.

Target audience
- Students, engineers and scientists working with complex simulations and control systems.

- A personal computer  (Linux/ Windows/ Mac OSx)
- A clean USB key for file exchange
- Internet access is not required but could be useful

Note for Windows users: some exercises require the presence of a C compiler. Under Linux "gcc" is installed as default (check with "gcc -v"). Windows users must install Visual C/C++ Studio Express 2008 (this version is freely dowladable from Microsoft's web site).

- The new Yellow Book:

Modeling and Simulation in Scilab/ Scicos With Scicoslab 4.4,
Stephen L. Campbell, Jean-Philippe Chancelier, et Ramine Nikoukhah

- On line documentation available here:

This three days course is a general purpose introduction to the art of dynamical systems simulation and automatic code generation for real time embedded systems using ScicosLab/Scicos. We will make references and comparisons with Matlab/Simulink, Kepler and Ptolemy. The course is focused on ScicosLab/Scicos, ERIKA and Scicos-FLEX.
