“OBIA for the operational Copernicus service challenge”

Important information

Due to the current and worldwide exceptional situation regarding the COVID-19 virus,  the format of the Summer School will be adapted into a remote event. Detailed information will be announced on this website in the next days.

For administrative reasons the following changes were decided regarding the participation to the summer school:

  • Extension of the registration deadline until April 26th, 2020
  • The Virtual Summer School will take place June 1st – July 10th (no typing error)
  • Training material (lectures and hands-on sessions) for self-learning will be provided online.
  • Additionally compulsory Videoconferences (at the beginning of the Summer School: Introduction and Clarification of organisational isues and at the end of the Summer School: Presentation of results of Group works) and Webinars are planned.
  • Registration fee: due to the current situation no registration fee for the Summer School itself applies, only registraion fee for the GI_Forum 2020

We hope that through these measures, the registration and participation for our summer school will be facilitated in these uncertain times.
