ACM India Announces Winter Schools December 2022
October 28, 2022
ACM India is organizing winter school as usual, and they are back to being physical again, which is becoming the norm after two years of online mode operation! We are pleased to announce "ACM India Winter Schools December 2022" which offer self-motivated students in-depth knowledge and exposure to research in advanced technology areas. Each school typically covers academic and applied research in a technology topic, and is taught by the best-in-class faculty from academia and industry. Conducted over a two-week period, it’s practically a one-semester equivalent course of the highest quality. For the entire history of the summer and winter schools, please look up the ACM India Summer & Winter Schools home page.
From the applications received from across India, about 40 students will be selected per school. They will spend two weeks on the host institute campus. Note that the registration fee of Rs2500 (to be paid only by the selected students) covers the entire lodging and boarding expenses during the school. Each day comprises lectures as well as tutorial sessions with hands-on problem solving experience. Toward the end of the school, there will be a session focused on career options in the area covered by the school.
These schools are targeted at students in the pre-final year of Bachelor's program or higher, unless marked otherwise in the school’s website. The school on “Topics in Trust” strongly encourages female students to apply and based on the response will accommodate additional female students over and above the 40 typically planned. Please note that these schools are open to all students, not only those who are ACM members. So please feel free to circulate this message in your academic institutions and fellow student network.
There is no fee while applying to the schools. Only the selected students will be asked to pay the registration fee of Rs2500 + 18% GST. We encourage you to go ahead and apply to the schools of your interest.
