As a pathfinder for the JEM-EUSO mission, Mini-EUSO is a 25cm diameter telescope which is going to be launched and positioned inside the International Space Station (ISS) in 2018. The main scientific goal of this mission is the achievement of a state-of-the-art UV map of the Earth from a 400 Km altitude, with $\sim 6$ km of pixel spatial resolution, collecting data though a multi-level triggering system. The signal is collected with Multi-Anode Photo Multiplier Tubes (MAPMTs) and digitized by means of custom chips. The raw data moves then to a central system, the Zynq Board, where the trigger operates a data selection dividing different classes of events characterized by specific time scales. The acquired UV map will be used as discrimination threshold for the Extreme Energy Cosmic-Ray detection.

Metadata are provided both in "article" format (very similar to INSPIRE) as this helps creating
very compact bibliographies which can be beneficial to authors and
readers, and in "proceeding" format
which is more detailed and complete.
