uGMRT Boot-Camp :

The upgraded GMRT (uGMRT) offers unique opportunities in Pulsar Astronomy. Pilot observations are on-going to search for new pulsars and the on-going pulsar timing program aims to contribute to the direct detection of nano-Hz gravitational waves.

The 4-day boot camp will involve introductory lectures on various aspects of Pulsar Astronomy and hands-on training for analyzing uGMRT pulsar data. The boot-camp is open for Ph.D students, Post-Doctoral Fellows and a few exceptionally motivated MSc students.

Interested students may register by filling out the online application form on or before October 31, 2017. Students (including Ph.D. students) should request their research guide or a faculty who has taught them recently to send a letter of recommendation to:

Selected participants will be informed by November 30, 2017. They should bring their own laptop having Linux OS. Accommodation and meals will be provided free of charge to all the selected outstation participants. Limited travel support may be available for extremely deserving candidates.

Neutron Star Workshop :

The fourth edition of Neutron Star workshop, to be held during 7-8th January, 2018, will focus on Multi-Wavelength Neutron Star Astronomy, achievable with Indian facilities such as ASTROSAT, uGMRT, Ooty Radio Telescope, Devesthal Optical Telescope and LIGO-India. The workshop will have slots for technical presentations and discussions to advance our on-going collaborative activities.

Participation is by invitation only.
