Programme – University of Copenhagen

Programme

The first week of the school will be at the Observatorio Roque de los Muchachos, and the second week in the ING offices in Santa Cruz de La Palma. We will be observing the nights starting September 5-9, and therefore usually mornings before lunch are empty and meant for sleeping. During the second week some additional specialized session will be organized, e.g., on careers in astronomy.
