Young India

As part of the celebrations surrounding the centenary of the birth of Homi Bhabha, the Tata Institute of Fundamental Research, Mumbai will host the Young India Scientists Colloquium from 7 to 10 September.

YISC2009 will feature talks by several invited young scientists from all over India covering various aspects of Mathematics, Computer Science, Physics, Chemistry, and Biology. A large number of college teachers, who have inspired several of the graduate students, have been invited to attend this event from all over the country.

On the other hand, if you happen to be in Delhi on those days, the good news is that the entire program will be webcast at two locations in the city, at the Delhi University South Campus and at the Inter University Accelerator Center on Aruna Asaf Ali Marg, Vasant Kunj.

The proceedings will be projected in large auditoriums (depending on the turnout) and refreshments will be available. Do drop by- this is a great chance to see the young scientists of India, especially those who have made a very special mark. And a great way to remember Bhabha, shown alongside with one of his heroes, Neils Bohr, and above with one of his special toys with which he studied cosmic rays, making very fundamental discoveries here, in India...

The program is up on the YISC page, and you can write to the YISC organisers at yisc @ tifr.res.in, or call them- their numbers are listed on the YISC contact page.
