 Welcome 

The Nordic Summer School is a major activity organised by the NordGISci network. It is intended to provide a series of advanced workshops for young researchers. By young researchers we refer to PhD students, licentiate students, and fresh postdoctoral researchers (PhD within 3 years). The workshops will be instructed by some leading researchers in the emerging field of Geographic Information Science. Young researchers from Nordic and Baltic countries, as well as from North Western Russia, are eligible, and therefore are encouraged to apply for admission to the school. For those selected, we will provide full financial support including travel, accommodation and course materials.

This year's summer school (NordGISci'10) will kick off with a seminar on paper writing and publishing given by Bin Jiang on Monday morning. Four workshops are scheduled into two half-day sessions in two separate days. This way we hope both the instructors and the students would have a bit relax schedule. Four invited instructors are Hanan Samet, Wolfgang Kainz, Tao Zhou and Jukka Matthias Krisp.

To participate in the event, please send in your Application Form, and submit an abstract (about 300 words) about your current research. The submission should include title, name, affiliation, and abstract. Should you need to declare your travel expense, please download the Travel Expense Claim Form.
