Acknowledging the students' need for more time to finalize their summer plans, we are extending the deadline for applying to summer schools to Thursday 14 March 2019. These schools are targeted at pre-final year undergraduate or masters students. In exceptional cases, PhD students or students in other years may also be considered.

Below are the Summer Schools planned this year. The details of the summer schools and the application procedure are also available at

These schools will have intense lecture and hands-on sessions on advanced topics. The aim is to give exposure to recent advances in these areas to bright and motivated undergraduate/graduate students.

Although being an ACM Student Member is not a requirement for applying to these summer schools, we encourage the applicants to join ACM, the world's largest educational and scientific computing society, aimed at advancing computing as a science and a profession.

There is a non-refundable application fee of INR 236 (INR 200 + GST) to be paid before you submit the application form. Payment link is provided here. You are required to provide payment reference while you fill the form to apply to be considered for Summer School 2019.

And finally, here is the link for the Summer School 2019 application form. You can apply for two out of the seven schools in your order of preference. Remember that the seats per school are limited and the application does not guarantee acceptance. Also keep in mind that the competition for some of the schools will tend to be much more than others, and so choose your preferences wisely. Deadline for submitting application is 14 March 2019. The selected students will be notified around 22 April 2019, who will then need to pay a nominal registration fee (maximum Rs3000). Lodging and boarding of students will be covered as part of the school.
