The 1st ChETEC-INFRA Observational School (ChINOS) 2023 will take place from July 24 to 28 (arrival July 23, 2023) at the Ondřejov Observatory near Prague, Czech Republic. ChINOS has been developed within the European Starting Community ChETEC-INFRA and focuses on teaching astronomical spectroscopic observing techniques to young scientists (Master's students, PhD students and young postdocs) working in nuclear astrophysics. The school includes three nights of remotely controlled observations at the Nordic Optical Telescope (NOT) on La Palma, Spain. Observed spectra are analysed in small teams among the school participants.
The school is open to all young nuclear astrophysicists worldwide. You can apply for the school by filling in the registration page.
Currently we plan to accept 14 students who will be selected based on their motivation letter and letter(s) of recommendation.
ChETEC-INFRA funds are available to support selected students for lodging (shared apartments at the Observatory) and meals. Travel expenses have to be covered by their home institutions. Statements in this regard can be made in the registration form.
