Nordic-Baltic Optical/NIR and Radio Astronomy Summer School
Star Formation in the Milky Way and Nearby Galaxies
8th-18th June 2009; Turku, Finland
Approval of the full credit for the equivalent of 6 ECTS for the school
requires that students complete a report on their research projects.
To enhance the similarity of the school to life in actual research, the
preferred form of report is a full-scale 5-6-page research paper from
each research group, prepared for one of the major international
journals (A&A, ApJ, AJ, MNRAS) with their standard article formatting
and submission tools. Alternatively, an 8-10-page report in standard
Latex format (A4 format, 12 pt font) is acceptable as well, provided the
content is to similar standards, with proper references, etc.
In either case, the complete report should be submitted by e-mail as a
single PDF file to Raine Karjalainen (rkarjala(at)not.iac.es), with a copy
to the project leader of each group. Project groups are free to consult
with the project leader during the preparation of the report.
The deadline for submission is *** Sunday, July 19, 2009***
Upon approval of the reports by the project leaders, participants will
receive a certificate describing the content and estimated effort of the
course and the equivalent ECTS rating (NB: This is subject to approval
by the home university of each participant).
