Call for ASI 2021 Workshop Proposals

The 39th meeting of the Astronomical Society of India (ASI) is scheduled to be held online in mid-February 2021 tentatively.

As has been the case for the last several ASI meetings, it is proposed to hold a few one-day workshops the day before the ASI meeting starts. The SOC invites proposals for conducting workshops, in the form of a 1-2 page abstract about the theme, the rationale for the workshop and the expected number of participants. The current expectation is that the Virtual Organising Committee (VOC) will be able to host up to four workshops.
