This school intends to be an easy introduction to Multi-band (MB) Aperture photometry and Bayesian Photometric Redshifts derived from Modern Astronomical Redshift Surveys. The school will the given by Dr. Alberto Molino (IAG, Universidade de São Paulo, Brazil), who is an expert on this topic. 
 
In particular, the school aims at teaching how to perform different types of photometry (Isophotal, Circular, Flexible) on astronomical images, how to extract astrometric and morphological information from stars and galaxies, how to generate MB photometric catalogs, how to create and trim (png) color images from (FITS) images, how to create mosaic (FITS) images, how to visualize images and catalogs with VO tools, how to derive Bayesian Photometric Redshifts and how to visualize and quantify its precision.
 
The school is open to graduate students, post-docs and professors of different institutions. Considering the size of Room202, there is a limit of 32 participants.
