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
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.
