NBHM approved organization of workshops linked to advanced instructional schools in its January 2006 meeting. Each advanced instructional school is normally devoted to two interlinked subjects. A typical AIS is run like an advanced Ph. D. course. It is expected that enough material is covered in an AIS so that participants may be able to follow current research papers after the school. It is therefore natural to call the graduates of advanced instructional schools for week long workshops devoted to a single subject.
The National Coordinating Committee of ATM Schools will now be requesting all the organizers of the advanced instructional schools to also plan two workshops assuming the contents of the AIS. These workshops will normally be organized in the year following the AIS.
Here are brief guidelines for these workshops:
- Duration of the workshops will be of 6 days.
- A workshop will be devoted to one of the subjects in which an AIS has been organized
- Three speakers will be invited by the organizer. Each speaker may deliver 6 lectures in expository-cum-survey type style on a theme of his/her choice. The objective of these is to introduce young researchers to an area of current research.
- There will be an open ended discussion hour each day.
- Six young researchers among the participants will be invited to present one hour talks on papers/sections in books related with the themes of the main lectures.
- There will be only one organizer for a workshop.
- These may be organized any time depending on the convenience of the speakers and availability of facilities. However they will not clash with any AIS.
- Four regularly spaced workshops are recommended each year.
- AIS participants and researchers in the area are eligible to attend.
