CALL FOR PARTICIPATION
2nd TAROT Summer School on testing of software and communicating systems
The 2nd TAROT Summer School (TAROT'06) is going to be jointly organized by the Universidad Complutense de Madrid and the Universidad de Castilla La Mancha.
The TAROT network is a research and training network in the framework of the Marie Curie program of the European Commission.
This network was created to foster the mobility of students, faculty members and research scientists working in the field of testing of software and communication systems. To promote these goals, this Summer School will bring together lecturers, researchers, students and people from the industry across Europe for one week of presentations, discussions and getting to know each other.
Specifically, the main goal of the TAROT Summer School is to give researchers and particularly Ph.D. students the opportunity to follow a number of tutorials
and invited talks by key experts in the field.
The TAROT Summer School is open to researchers from any institution in the world, working in the area of testing, both from academia and industry.
The first TAROT Summer School was highly successful, attracting more than 50 students from all around the world. The school has developed into an important
meeting place and forum for discussion for students, researchers and IT professionals interested in the interdisciplinary study of Testing. In addition to courses, the school will also have laboratory sessions and a social program.

TRAVEL AND LOCAL INFORMATION
By plane to Madrid-Barajas airport and then a 35-minute nonstop from Atocha railway station to Toledo.
The historic city centre sits on a craggy rock, which is almost completely encircled by a wide meander of the Tagus river, called the Tajo in Spanish.
The Roman historian Tito Livio mentioned the city of Toletum, a term whose origin would be Tollitum, meaning "raised aloft".
The city's historic centre is one of the largest in Spain, and has more than 100 monuments.
The scientific program of TAROT'06 will be held in the University of Castilla La Mancha, in the historic building "San Pedro Martir", Toledo.
