The students of FICS typically have two supervisors, on expert in computational methods and another in an application field. Possible supervisors are listed in, but not restricted to, this page. If the main supervisor of an applicant is not a member of the board of advisors (see below), then the applicant is asked to contact one of the members of the board of advisors.
