The Ph. Flajolet School on Analytic Combinatorics and the Analysis of Algorithms (ANALCO School 2014) builds upon the experience of two previous schools on the same topics held in Maresias (Brazil) in 2008 and in Vienna (Austria) in 2010. Those previous schools (AofA School 2008, AofA School 2010) were held in combination with the International Meetings on the Analysis of Algorithms (AofA) these years. In this edition, the school is held in combination with ANALCO 2014, with a clear vocation of continuity to become a regular scientific event.

Philippe Flajolet (1948-2011), French mathematician and computer scientist, was one of the founders of the field of Analytic Combinatorics and one of the most prominent scientific figures in Analysis of Algorithms for the last 30 years. His enduring work shaped the field and will provide the scientific foundations for the future generations of researchers working in this area.
