The main objective of the school is to introduce the current observing facilities available at the 8-10m class telescope. We also plan to dedicate the afternoons to hands on sessions during which the participants will be introduced to the analysis of photometr ic and spectroscopic data.  Finally, we will outline the first generation of ELT instruments and their scientific impact.

Target: 40-50 students (Master, PhD) and young researchers

The school will be held in Belgrade in Serbia, where it will be organized by
the Faculty of Mathematics University of Belgrade and Astronomical Observatory
