Let me cordially greet you on behalf of the NCS College team and inform you regarding organisation of NCS College 2018. This year’s NCS College, already the fourth one since 2012, is organized by the University of Defence in Brno and the National Codification Bureau of the Czech Republic with support of other Czech and foreign partners in Brno from 27 August to 14 September 2018. Like in the preceding years, the NCS College 2018 is divided into two courses: the 1-week Course for Managers & Logisticians held on 27 – 31 August 2018, and the 2-week Course for Codifiers held on 3 – 14 September 2018. Based on previous experience and feedback from our students the training will be focused on practical aspects of codification processes and will be carried out using real codification software. This conception of practical training, particularly in the Courses for Codifiers, fully complies with current requirements for effective preparation of codifiers.
