Hello all, and sorry for cross-posting,

let me forward the first announcement of the GEOSTAT 2014 Summer school.


The GEOSTAT 2014 Summer School for PhD students and R-sig-geo
enthusiasts will be held this year at the Norwegian School of Economics
(NHH), Bergen, Norway in the period 15-22 June 2014 (arrive Sunday to
depart Sunday). The topics include: spatial and spatio-temporal data
and analysis in R, R as a GIS, spatial data modelling with raster
package, visualization of spatial and spatio-temporal data in Google
Earth, GRASS GIS and QGIS tutorials, and spatio-temporal geostatistics.

This summer school is limited to 50 participants (two parallel
sessions). Selection of candidates is based on a ranking system, which
is based on: time of registration, solidarity (participants further
away from the venue receive higher ranking), academic record, and
contributions to open source projects. The registration costs for the
summer school are typically between EUR 300 - 400; these cover the
actual costs, no profits are made. The organizers provide no
funding/scholarships to participants. Participants from ODA-listed
countries, however, can apply for a subsidized price for registration

The registration deadline is 1st March 2014.
