NEON summer school 2011

The ninth Neon Observing school (school at the telescope) took place at: 
Molėtai Astronomical Observatory (Lithuania) from July 14 to 27, 2011

NEON stands for the Network of European Observatories in the North. The organizing consortium is composed of Asiago Observatory (Italy), Calar Alto Observatory (Germany, Spain), European Southern Observatory (ESO, Germany; including participation from the Space Telescope European Coordinating Facility), Observatoire de Haute-Provence (OHP, France), Institut d'Astrophysique de Paris (IAP, France) and La Palma observatories (ING and NOT, UK, Netherlands, Spain and Nordic Countries).

The NEON Observing Schools are supported by OPTICON and the European Astronomical Society (EAS).



The aim of the NEON summer schools
The purpose of the summer schools is to provide the opportunity for young researchers to gain practical experience in observational techniques, data reduction and analysis and the use of virtual observatory tools. Students will carry out small research projects, centered on selected astrophysical topics, in small groups under the supervision of experienced astronomers. These practical exercises will be complemented by lectures on general observational techniques and archival research for both ground and space based astronomy.

The observing school at the telescopes on La Palma will largely concentrate on the skills required to execute an observing program (imaging and spectroscopy) and instrumental developments.

The schools are principally open to astronomy PhD students and postdocs who are nationals of a Member State or an Associate State of the European Union. This includes applicants who are currently working outside the EU. Applications from other European countries will also be considered.
