Lectures to be presented at the Birla Science Centre, Hyderabad, India, February 20-23, 2017.

This event is open to students in all Bachelors and Masters level programs, i.e., need not be Astronomy. Students should have an interest in astronomy and in cross-cultural interaction. We emphasize many different kinds of learning and the value of cultural exchange and networking.

A limited number of spaces will be available. Application deadline is 1 Dec 2016 for Indian students. Participants will be selected by the Organizing Committee by 15 Dec 2016. International students who apply after 1 Dec 2016 will be considered only if there is space available.

Participation fees will be Rs 2000 for Indian students, which includes lunches, coffee breaks, and other logistics. For international students, the participation fee is USD 200 (or CAD 250 for Canadian students), which includes shared accommodation for up to five nights (or private accommodation for an additional fee) and lunches and coffee breaks. Travel costs are the responsibility of the student. Indian students should arrange their own accommodations, but we will have suggested affordable accommodations near the venue. Financial assistance will be available for a small number of participants.
