First MCCT-SKADS Training School

MCCT-SKADS - (other mcctskads conferences)
September 23-29, 2007
Medicina, Bologna Italy
INAF, Istituto di Radioastronomia, will host the First MCCT-SKADS Training School in September 2007. The school is fully sponsored by the Marie Curie MCCT-SKADS programme, within the Sixth Framework Programme of the European Commission. This school is the first in a series of three, and the overall aim of the SKADS training programme is to attract and train potential users of the new generation of radio interferometers, with particular emphasis on SKADS. The school will cover the following areas: 1. fundamentals of radio astronomy and radio interferometry; 2. technical developments; 3. science highlights particularly relevant to the new generation of radio interferometers. The topics will be developed in the light of SKADS and of the future radio interferometers. The programme consists of lectures and scientific talks, spread over a full week, with morning and afternoon sessions.
