Application for courses
The course will be aimed at students in the first years of their PhD studies, and contain lectures by internationally top scientists, observations, exercises and assignments based mostly on own observations. Successful participation documented by passing a small pre-course-exam and successful presentation of work with a large assignment will give 6 ECU credits towards a doctoral degree. 3 ECU study credits can be earned additionally by submitting results for publication in the dedicated Course book.

The aim of the course is to give participants a modern knowledge of how to observe and interpret stellar spectra and pulsations, by doing own observations, interpret existing observations and do theoretical modelling. The main topics of the course is to teach methods for investigation of stellar main atmospheric parameters, the detailed chemical composition, influence of the magnetic fields, mixing and diffusion of material in stellar atmospheres, asteroseismology, investigation of surface structures, and search for exoplanets. The highest priority will be given to observational techniques and doing of own observations. Both photometric and spectroscopic observing techniques will be taught and tried out at telescopes.
Five telescopes with modern detectors will be available for observations, three at the Moletai Observatory in Lithuania, and two at Canary Islands remotely operated - the Nordic Optical Telescope at La Palma and IAC80 Teide Observatory telescope at Teide.

 Application can
be downloaded in RTF format

The trip from Vilnius to Moletai observatory will be arranged by LOC.
