Call accouncement – SOLARNET Summer School for Solar Observers – A week above the clouds

May 14, 2019, from Richard Morton

Dear Colleagues,

We want to draw your attention towards the *SOLARNET Summer School for Solar Observers – A week above the clouds* which will be held at the Observatorio del Teide in August 5-9, 2019.

Our purpose is to instruct students and young postdocs in the capabilities and operation of the German solar facilities at the observatory, by giving them the opportunity to

– run real observations at GREGOR, the largest solar telescope in Europe

– calibrate data by learning how to use the existing data pipelines, Python and deep learning techniques

– learn how to complement ground-based observations with space-based observations

– experience the observers’ life up the mountain for a week

through different lectures and experimental activities (programme in SOLARNET webpage available soon).


Due to restrictions in accommodation, the number of participants is limited to 12.

To register, please send an email to with a brief statement of interest indicating your field of research and why you want to participate in the school.

Registration deadline: June 15, 2019.


We kindly ask you to circulate this announcement among your students/young researchers interested in participating in this event.

Best Regards,

Nazaret Bello González & Rolf Schlichenmaier
