NASA’s Navigation and Ancillary Information Facility (NAIF) is pleased to announce a beginners’ SPICE training class to be held in the vicinity of Pasadena, California, on November 7 - 9, 2017.  Information about SPICE<https://naif.jpl.nasa.gov/naif/aboutspice.html> is available here.

The announcement and registration form<https://naif.jpl.nasa.gov/naif/WS2017_prelim_announcement> are found here, or may be accessed from the “Announcements” page at the NAIF website<https://naif.jpl.nasa.gov/>. One must fill out and return the registration form to gain entry to the class, and to receive further announcements about the class.

The class is designed for scientists, engineers and upper-level students involved in space science missions. It will consist of lectures and student-executed programming exercises. It will be a rather intense three-day event.

The class is open to all, including foreign nationals and persons representing commercial enterprises, on a first-come, first-served basis. NAIF reserves the right to limit attendance if needed to keep the class to a manageable size, or to ensure good representation from NASA and its partners.

The class is free, but attendees must pay for their own transportation, lodging and per diem expenses. NAIF, JPL and NASA reserve the right to cancel the class in the absence of sufficient registrations, or due to unforeseen circumstances. (In twenty years of offering this class, never has a cancelation been necessary.)

Note that a self-training option<https://naif.jpl.nasa.gov/naif/self_training.html> is available for those unable to attend the class.

A follow-up announcement will be sent out once NASA has arranged the actual location (the hotel).

Feel encouraged to forward this announcement to any colleagues who might be interested in learning about SPICE.
