Some info copy paste from the website:

The EDIT Summer School 2009 : "From field to Web - studying biodiversity with the taxonomist's toolbox"

The setting for the Second EDIT Summer School is the biodiversity-rich region of the Muránska planina national park, Slovakia, from July 19th 2009 until August 1th 2009 (2 weeks).

This second edition builds on the experiences gained during the First Summer School (Maritime Alps, 2008), and will show theory and practice of modern taxonomic fieldwork, more specifically the full work flow from specimen dataset to biodiversity insight, from field to Web :

* preparation
* field work
* processing
* safekeeping
* sharing.

The central theme : from Field to Web

We've broken down the full work flow from specimen dataset to biodiversity insight into 5 broad topics : preparation, field work, processing, safekeeping and sharing. Training providers can address any of these issues, and plenty of ongoing "hot topic" discussions can be linked to them. We provide some possible ideas for discussions/lesson topics here, but this list is by no means limiting. Actual activities may or may not cover all of these topics.

call for students
We are looking for enthusiastic students eager to participate in two weeks of open, two-way exchange of ideas and knowledge about taxonomical fieldwork and biodiversity. We offer theoretical courses, fieldwork, labwork and discussions with professional taxonomists, in a splendid natural reserve. If you are accepted, we'll provide your transport to the Summer School, full board and accommodation (probably in dorms) for the full period of your stay.

We expect you to be a teamplayer, eager to learn and with a critical but positive attitude. Some of the field work will be carried out on rough ground. You should take the necessary precautions with regard to walking gear and have an adequate physical condition.

There are only a limited number of places available (max. 20) and only 1 or 2 students per country will be accepted (depending on the nationalities of the applicants). It is therefore very important that you follow the application procedure to the letter.
