Innsbruck Summer School of Alpine Research 2015 looks to be pretty interesting, with lots of opportunity for technical learning, have a look at the details here:
Close Range Sensing Techniques in Alpine Terrain (5-11th July 2015)
The main goal of the Joint Summer School 2015 is to provide students with innovative practical and methodological skills to characterize complex terrain and object features using close- and near range remote sensing techniques.
Theoretical lectures will be complemented by fieldwork assignments and hands-on data processing sessions using different novel software. The assignments will be divided into two different tracks. One track will focus on mountain research, the other on sensor and data processing techniques.
A variety of sensor systems will be available for data acquisition in the high mountain surroundings of the summer school venue, including terrestrial laser scanners, unmanned aerial vehicles and spectral cameras.
A poster session on the participants’ current research interests and work will stimulate open exchange and discussion between students and lecturers in a relaxed atmosphere.
Deadline for registration is 30th December 2014
