The 4th Summer School For Young Scientists "Scientific space research: informational services on remote sensing and space weather"
September 7-13, 2006 Evpatoria, Crimea, Ukraine
The annual School enjoys a tradition in providing in-depth teaching on aspects of space science and space technologies with the aim of advancing the training and working experience of graduates, postgraduate students, young scientists and engineers.
In 2006 it will be the 4th School that will focus on the theme ôScientific Space Research: Informational services on remote sensing and space weatherö
The School is an excellent meeting point for young scientists, providing students and young specialists the opportunity to create many valuable contacts with professionals and like-minded scientists. Within the School students will have the chance to meet professionals and know their suggestions on the future directions of science and space technologies. During the School there will be also organized demonstration of capabilities of Monitoring System of Black Sea developed in Marine Hydrophysical Institute of NASU.
The Summer School is organised by the National Space Agency of Ukraine (NSAU) and National Academy of Sciences of Ukraine (NASU) and Space Research Institute of NASU-NSAU.
The 4th School for young scientists ôScientific Space Researchö will focus on the following main topics:
- Investigation of the Earth from space
- Space weather and space physics
- Methods and algorithms for satellite data processing
- Informational services, space information technologies and infrastructure
- Space biology
- Technical aspects and design of space vehicles
This year the emphasis will be done on monitoring of natural hazards from Space and space weather. We will pay a special attention to informational services according to priorities of programs GMES (Global Monitoring for Environment and Security) and GEOSS (Global Earth Observation System of Systems).
The program of School will include lectures of leading specialists and scientists as well as report of young scientists. Listeners without reports are also welcomed.
Even if your work isnĺt related to space research, but interesting for implementation of new informational technologies, you are welcome to become participant.
There will be presented the results of call for proposals on informational services on remote sensing and space weather. Information about call for proposals is available via Internet address http://inform.ikd.kiev.ua.
Everyday before dinner for young scientists there will be organized 2 lectures (overview speeches) of leading researchers and key specialists (each for 2 academic hours). Lectures will be devoted to main directions and achieved results of scientific researches, which are held in their organizations, and will outline perspective directions of researches.
After dinner (in second part of the day) young scientists will present their reports.
For School participants there will be organized a trip to National Center for Space Vehicles Control and Testing that is situated near Yevpatoria.
Special session will be organised in Marine Hydrophysical Institute of the National Academy of Sciences of Ukraine for demonstration of capabilities of monitoring system of Black Sea. Remote Sensing Department of Marine Hydrophysical Institute is the leading Ukrainian subdivision in the field of the environmental remote sensing. Marine Hydrophysical Institute has HRPT satellite receiving station, software and hardware for data processing and a data archivation. During the last five years the department was involved in the study of the Black, Aral and Caspian Seas and gathered experience in the analysis of long series of satellite data and imagery.
