The School is intended for all interested individuals with education or work focus and experience in fields related to Resource Awareness in Informatics, Software or Computer Engineering, and System Usage. We welcome candidates from all eligible Countries according to COST Annotated Rule (see page 60 and country and organization table).
The lecture topics featured by the Training School program do not place exceptionally high barriers on prior skills and knowledge by the participants. The Training School program includes hands-on laboratories that will require participants to carry out technical work with which they may not be experts. On-site assistance will be provided (by the lecturers themselves or aids theirs) to help out those in need.
The Training School is designed as a full-immersion full-time event, which does not allow for part-time attendance during the day or across days. The programmatic intent of the Training School is to get all participants collectively and synchronously across all of the topics addressed by all lectures so that the whole experience is shared by all participants.
