The International Summer School: "Advanced Instrumental Techniques for the Monitoring of Aquatic Environments" is organized within the framework of the Graduate Program in Environmental Sciences, offered by the Graduate School of the University of Nova Gorica. The International School will be held in Nova Gorica, Slovenia, during the period from 17 June till 29 June 2011.

The International Summer School is intended for students at graduate level, who have research and future professional interests in water pollution and related environmental issues.

Participants will have the opportunity to intensively interact with an international team of experts in the field of instrumental analytical chemistry and environmental science, and to present and discuss their study and research interests. We have invited top scientists and lecturers from universities all over the world, who will offer lectures in the areas of chromatographic, spectroscopic, electrochemical, bioanalytical and hyphenated techniques.

The International School will be organized as a series of intensive lectures, case study presentations, together with hands on laboratory experience and field work. Participants will be able to earn 10 ECTS credits for completion of the International School, after their final evaluation.

The International School will be financially supported by CMEPIUS, which offers 20 free positions for students from CEEPUS countries.
