Surveys are having a paramount role in the most recent advances of Extragalactic Astronomy. The astronomical community not only has access to public extragalactic surveys such as COSMOS, GOODs, UltraVISTA,… but some Institutions become partners of projects like AEGIS, SDSS-IV, PEP and HERMES (Herschel)... This School, devoted to the design and scientific exploitation of big extragalactic surveys, is aimed to PhD students and recent Post-Docs. It involves invited lectures from distinguished scholars as well as hands-on tutorials.
The School is partly financed by the Severo Ochoa Centre of Excelence grant SEV-2011-0187, awarded by the Spanish Ministry of Economy and Competitiveness (MINECO).
