NAIF with the ESA SPICE Service (ESS) announce that
the next SPICE training in Europe will be held on
April 17-21, 2023 at the European Space and
Astronomy Center (ESAC/ESA), Villanueva de la Canada, Madrid,
Spain. For more details about the class, please see
the ESS SPICE Training site.
To sign up for the class, please use the
class registration form.
SPICE taining classes are free of charge, but students must pay for all travel, lodging and per diem costs. Attendance is generally open to all, but may be limited according to room size or for other reasons.
It may be possible to hold classes elsewhere, with support from the host and with NASA approval. If you are interested in SPICE training classes you might talk to your space agency's management about hosting a local training class.
Self training is another option you might consider. This option makes use of the same tutorials and lessons used in the live training classes. The programming lessons contain helpful tips and drawings, and all needed data. They also contain the code "solutions" and expected numeric results. So this really is a viable second choice.
No Video Training
Because of the importance of the hands-on programming lessons that are part of the
SPICE training, NAIF does not offer recoded (e.g. YouTube) training.
