Dear Friends and Colleagues,

Greetings. We are pleased to announce that we will organize the 16th Radio Astronomy Winter School (RAWS2023) in the offline mode from 12th to 22nd December 2023. As you are aware RAWS is a joint initiative of IUCAA and NCRA-TIFR, and will be hosted this year by these two institutions at Pune.

The participants will be introduced to radio astronomy science and techniques through a series of lectures, demonstrations and experiments. Teams comprising of faculty mentors and students will work on activities together and interact closely with the resource persons.

Travel support and free hospitality will be provided to all selected participants as per norms.

Students are required to apply via the following link:
Students of 2nd and 3rd year of B.Sc./B.S./integrated M.S./ integrated M.Sc./B.E./B.Tech. programmes are eligible to apply.

Those applying via the wrong link will not be considered. More detailed information on RAWS2023 are available at

To avoid slow response times and delays in referee assessments for submissions close to the last date of application, we request participants to submit their applications as much in advance as possible.

A copy of the poster is attached. The links are clickable in the pdf file. Could we request you to kindly circulate this widely, especially to those who you think may be interested? For any queries please email us at with the subject heading RAWS2023.
