From Marco Zennaro, mzennaro@ictp... :

The Abdus Salam International Centre for Theoretical Physics is  
organizing a Workshop on
"ICTP-ITU-URSI SCHOOL ON WIRELESS NETWORKING FOR SCIENTIFIC  
APPLICATIONS IN DEVELOPING COUNTRIES", to be held in
Trieste, Italy, from the 5th to the 23rd February 2007.
This School is the follow-up of the previous schools on the use of  
radio for digital communications held yearly since
1998 and series of Colleges on Radiopropagation carried out earlier  
at ICTP with the collaboration of URSI and ITU/BDT.

The School is addressed to a limited number of candidates coming from  
academic and research institutions of Developing Countries and having  
an adequate working knowledge of IP networking. It will include  
tutorial lectures and laboratory work, where wireless solutions for  
computer networking will be experienced through hands-on sessions.

The Workshop is open to scientific computer consultants and network  
managers working in scientific institutions and isolated scientific  
environments with a minimal infrastructure. The main purpose of the  
Centre is to help research workers from developing countries within a  
framework of international cooperation. Scientists and students from  
all countries which are members of the United Nations, UNESCO or IAEA  
may attend the Workshop. As it will be conducted in
English, participants should have an adequate working knowledge of  
this language. As a rule, travel and subsistence expenses of the  
participants should
be borne by the home institution. Every effort should be made by  
candidates to secure support for their fare (or at least half-fare).
However, limited funds are available for some participants who are  
nationals of, and working in, a developing country, who will be  
selected by the Organizers, and who are not more than 45 years old.  
Such support is available only for those who attend the entire  
duration of the Workshop. There is no registration
fee. For both technical reasons and limited resources the total  
attendance to this Workshop is limited.
