Teaching methodology

The following teaching methodologies will be employed:

* Lectures.
* Participative sessions.
* Team work.
* Autonomous work.

Evaluation methodology

The evaluation will be based on the elaboration of a written report,
individually or in pairs of students. In this document students will be asked to
make a critical review of the methods described in the seminar and to
analyze their appicability in a real world problem.
