Courses take place over the two days and will run from 13:00 to 17:00 on the first day and from 09:00 to 12:30 on the second day. This gives attendees time to travel to and from St Andrews, and a free evening in which to digest the content of the first afternoon.
St Andrews, Fife, Scotland.

Day 1 (afternoon)
Lecture - An introduction to PAM
Lecture - Sampling, Detection and Localisation

What you should bring
Course attendees are encouraged to bring their own laptop computer, and mouse. At the very least, this means you will leave St Andrews with a working PAMGUARD configuration on your machine. Please notify us in advance if you are unable to bring your own laptop.
A number of USB sound cards and GPS connections will be made available. Attendees may also wish to bring their own sound cards, GPS receivers and any other hardware they wish to receive specific advice on.
Places will be allocated on a first come first served basis. Further details of the course location and travel information will be provided following registration.
For further information, please email: email@example.com
The courses will be led by Dr Douglas Gillespie of St Andrews University, one of the principle architects of the PAMGUARD software. There will also be other experienced PAMGUARD operators and developers to help with one to one tuition during the practical sessions.
All lectures will be given in English.
