The goal of this mini-course is to introduce some of the basic methods of Algebraic Geometry for which there is a natural interaction with Algebraic Combinatorics, as well as tools of Algebraic Combinatorics that are of special interest for Algebraic Geometry. The school is intended for graduate students, postdocts and researchers wishing to be introduced to these questions. Experimental aspects, involving computer algebra, will also be a part of these introductory courses.

This school is followed by the workshop on Interactions between Algebraic Combinatorics and Algebraic Geometry.
