The 2016 Observing school


The 2016 observing school will again be a Summer School, and will take place in Greece: 

                                                      from June 19th to July 2d, 2016

The school will focus on practical observations at the telescope, followed by data reduction
and presentation of the scientific results.
                                                       A preliminary program is  available   here.

Practical information for the June 2016 school is now  available   here
                    The annual meeting of the European Astronomical Society (EWASS) is planned the week after,
               in Athens, so that NEON students  can eventually participate in that meeting too (not covered by us).

The school is open to PhD students in Astrophysics, who need to gain observing experience.
Last year's Master students, or early PostDocs can also be considered 
Potential candidates will need to register  before April 2016.
The registration  is  open  here, and will close on April 1st.
The final selection has been made by our Committee by early May

All the local costs will be covered by Opticon
A contribution to travel costs can also be considered, on a case-by-case basis
(please explain on the registration form)

You can find more details on the Neon schools and their program by looking at the Past NEON schools.
