Astrodynamics of NEO and Space debris
The Second Stardust Training School (STS) is the second network-wide training event, and will be held at the University of Tor Vergata in Rome, Italy on 8-12 September 2014.
The goal of the school is to give all students/researchers enrolled in the Stardust network a background to start working on asteroid and debris dynamics.
There will be approximately 20 hours of lectures taught by leading experts in the field and members of Stardust, 4 hours of group work (restricted to the Stardust E(S)R's only), 4 hours of presentations by the E(S)R's and one public outreach event.
Other scientific activities are also planned. Teamwork is vital for the success of the network, both as a research tool and for training. As the network is spread out over Europe, at 14 different institutions, events like the training schools are important to help everyone get to know each other.
The school will also coincide with the second network meeting, to be held on Wednesday, September 10.
In order to provide to all the E(S)R's a broad overview of the network projects that they will be contributing to, informative sessions concerning the activities of the partners are scheduled on the Thursday-Friday (September 11-12) sessions
One of the distinctive features of this ITN project is the existence of Working Groups. Working Groups will engage into medium term cross-disciplinary projects, attempting the solution of problems either proposed by some partners in this ITN or by people external to the ITN.
