NATO Advanced Study Institute
The Role of VLBI in Astrophysics,
Summer School 2001
Astrometry and Geodesy
Albergo delle Terme , Castel San Pietro Terme (Bologna)
September 17 - 28, 2001
The Istituto di Radioastronomia of
the CNR , on behalf of the European VLBI
Consortium, will host the NATO ASI
VLBI Summer School next September 17-28, 2001. The purpose of the ASI
Summer School is to update and enlarge our knowledge on the scientific
potential of Very Long Baseline Interferometry (VLBI) and its development,
13 years after the similar school held in Castel San Pietro Terme. In particular,
it is our purpose to review VLBI techniques in the light of the most advanced
astronomical observations, and to emphasize the scientific issues where
this technique is recognised to play a crucial role in the fields of galactic
and extragalactic astronomy, astrometry and geodesy. Another important
aim of the school is to stimulate discussion and collaboration among people
working in different areas of research.
The ASI is open to graduate students and post-doctoral level scientists.
Lecturers and students are expected to stay for the entire duration of
the school to ensure full interaction. A total of about 80 people, including
participants and lecturers, are expected.

The cost of the accomodation at the Albergo delle Terme is about Lit. 95.000/day/person,
i.e. about 50 Euro/day/person, in a double room. All meals and coffee breaks
are included in the price. All participants will be accomodated in double
rooms. Please fill in and send the hotel registration
form directly to Albergo
delle Terme (specify "VLBI School" in the subject if sent via email).
The weather in Bologna (which should be more or less that
of Castel San Pietro, too) is quite variable during the second
half of September, so I advise you to have a look at
Bologna weather information as your arrival gets closer.
If statistics will work, you should expect a mild weather,
with maxima temperatures around 20 deg Celsius
and minima around 16 deg Celsius.
Rain is likely to show up as well, now and then.
