Sorry, the program of VI School will be available by June, 2016.
V School took place in September, 2015. Here you can find the full Program (link).
The School is 6 to 10 days course. It elucidates two topics: Satellite Navigation and the Earth Remote Sensing with an accent on its implementaton (GIS).
During the technical tour we visit interesting places like Mision Control Center and Moscow Planetarium.Please note that the working language of the School remains Russian. Nevertheless, we are ready to provide the exhaustive on-site and text translation in case of attending the School by two or more foreign English-speaking students. Plese let us know about it by July 2016. In other case we could try to find a form of distant access to the School materials for foreign students but a translation will take a time in this case.
