GEOSTAT Summer School for PhD students August 19 - 26 2018 | IBOT Prague, Czech Republic --- registrations are now open

Tomislav Hengl-5

The IBOT, Prague 2018 Summer School is the 13th in a series of summer
schools organized by R and Open Source (OS) GIS developers and
enthusiasts. GEOSTAT aims at PhD students and researchers in a range of
environmental and GIS sciences, especially those focusing on analyzing
spatial and spatio-temporal gridded data in R and OS GIS. The main idea
of GEOSTAT is to promote various aspects of statistical analysis of
spatial and spatio-temporal data using Open Source / free GIS languages
and tools: R, Python, GRASS GIS, QGIS, SAGA GIS and similar. For more
info see:

The registrations are now open. In the case there are >60 registrations,
we will rank regs based on the standard 4 criteria (read more at After the registration close, selected
applicants will be invited individually with detailed instructions
(travel, accommodation, registration fees and similar).

The registrations fees are expected to be about 420 EUR (invoice will be
sent after registrations). Registration fees cover costs of using
facilities, lunch and coffee breaks and costs of travel and
accommodation for lecturers. Participants from ODA countries (employed
by an organization or company in ODA-listed country) and full-time
students typically receive a subsidized price of 290 EUR for the
registration costs.
