2nd MCCT-SKADS Training School. Radio Astronomy: fundamentals and the new instruments

2nd MCCT-SKADS - (other mcctskads conferences)
26th August - 4th September 2008
Sigüenza (Spain)
published December 03, 2009
This school on Radioastronomy is the second one of a series of three in the framework of the training activities of the Square Kilometer Array Design Studies (SKADS) initiative. The first edition of the series was held in Bologna in 2007. The main goal is to attract and train potential users of the new generation of radio interferometers, with special focus on the Square Kilometer Array (SKA). This school is not only aimed to radio-astronomers but also to young astronomers/engineers regardless their speciality. A requirement is to have finished the graduate studies. Nationals from EU member and associated countries are fully supported by the MCCT/FP6 programme. The school covers the following areas: 1. fundamentals of radio astronomy and radio interferometry 2. science highlights particularly relevant to the new generation of radio interferometers and in particular to the SKA
