ESA Organises GNSS Summer School in Davos - 22/02/2013


From 15 to 25 July 2013, the ESA International Summer School on GNSS will be held in Davos, Switzerland. The objective of the summer school is to provide attendees with a comprehensive overview of satellite navigation, beginning with the GNSS system, its signals, the processing of the observations in a receiver and finally determining the position-navigation-time (PNT) solution.

Plenty of lab work will be carried out to offer attendees really hands-on involvement. The main emphasis will be on the development of a group project using innovative ideas and covering all aspects from the idea, business plan, technical realisation to the marketing of the product or the service. 
The programme is open to graduate students (with a first university degree), PhD candidates, early-stage researchers and young professionals willing to broaden their knowledge. Internationally renowned scientists and specialists will give the lectures as well as the practical exercises and lab work.

The Summer School is organised in cooperation with Stanford University, Institut Supérieur de l’Aéronautique et de l’Espace (ISAE), Toulouse, France, Graz University of Technology, Austria and University FAF Munich, Germany.

The following participants can register for the ESA Summer School:

Graduate students (more than 3 years of study)
PhD students and postdoctoral researchers (< 35 years)
Young engineers and professionals from industry and agencies (< 35 years)

The number of participants is limited to 50, so early registration (reduced rate) is recommended (first come - first served).
