4th IVS Technical Operations Workshop
Class Interest Feedback Form

Deadline was March 6, 2007.
Submission is closed.

Use this form to

  1. give us feedback on your interest in possible courses to be offered,
  2. tell us what classes we forgot to list.

The feedback to this form will help the Program Committee decide how many and which type of courses will be offered. If there is insufficient interest for a course we will not teach it. If there is a lot of interest for a course, we will attempt to accommodate everyone who wants to attend. We may have to change the planned size of classes depending on the interest.

Several weeks before the meeting, a class selection form will be available with the exact classes to be offered.

Please check the appropriate column for each course to indicate your interest in the topic. Topic descriptions are available through the links on each name, or you can browse the complete course descriptions. Please rank as many courses as you may be interested in, using the "High interest " category and the "Medium interest " category. If you don't click anything for a course, this will be interpreted by the Program Committee as "No interest".
