Short courses will be arranged by the ISI and its Associations, with the support of IBGE, during 23-25 July 2015. They will be held at facilities offered by IBGE in Rio de Janeiro. The venue addresses are provided below.

All Congress delegates are welcome to register. There will be a fee for each short course, which is kept as low as possible just to recover the costs. The fees for developing country participants are offered at a discount rate thanks to a grant from the European Free Trade Association (EFTA), who is also offering some funding opportunities for younger participants from South and Latin America (see complete announcement).
