This is the third year of internship program on Cellular Automata: Theory and Applications. This year the internship is more rigorously project based and the theory relevant to the projects will be discussed in class.
Broad topics to be covered for this year:
Evaluation: The participants are to be evaluated by periodic assignments, written examinations and project work. Every participant has to complete his/her project and submit a final project report.
Outcome of the school: Against each project, a paper is to be written for submission (preferably to ASCAT 2024). The participants have to complete the paper to get the final certificate for attending the school.
Mentor: Participants will be guided by the mentors. Publications will be joint publication - by participants and mentors.
Eligibility: Graduate students (Masters, PhD, PostDoc), researchers and faculty members, highly motivated undergraduate students.
Fees: There will be NO fees for participating in the school. But the participant has to attend all the classes and complete the project work to get the certificate.
The opportunity to participate in Summer School 2022 was amazing, and I am glad to be working with one of my favorite mentors, Dr. Kamalika Bhattacharjee. I have gathered a ton of new knowledge on cellular automata. We dealt with an immediate issue, namely the spread of a deadly virus. I was extremely excited to do such a significant job in this field. I would like to thank the Summer School 2022 team for organizing such a beautiful event. I am glad to participate in the Summer School 2022. It was a great experience.
We got opportunity to connect the people from different backgrounds, new connections in Cellular Automata Community. It was well balanced program, constructive and getting suggestions from mentors time to time to improve the work and many more. Sincerely thanks to my mentors (Dr. Kamalika B. mam and Dr. Sukanya M. mam) were willing to answer all my questions and guide me to the next steps in my project. Special thanks to Prof. Sukanta sir. I got the good suggestions and feedback from him, Prof. Sukanta sir knew exactly how to help me. Few hours were devoted to project presentation from the students, it provides a good platform to share the work, idea and get a positive feedback from the mentors.
The school provided an extensive and in depth introduction to ca. the projects and guidance from the professors helped implement the theoretical knowledge into practical application. One of the best summer schools I’ve attended, good support from professors and other students.
This summer school immensely helped me to understand the current state of cellular automata as a technology and the potential issues therein. Attending this online school improved my understanding of alternative computational models, and I also got valuable suggestions for the project work during discussions and review meetings with mentors. Post-summer school, this work resulted in a research paper publication at the conference (ASCAT-2023) organized by the Cellular Automata India Society. This summer school was conducted online without any participation fee. It was an enriching experience for me, which I recommend to all cellular automata enthusiasts.
The teaching and the mentoring part was too good learnt a lot during the internship.
Scope to get the knowledge about cellular automata and to enhance the research activities. I am glad to be a part of cellular automata workshop as a beginner. I am very much obliged to the organizer, coordinator and the resource persons those who have helped us to gain knowledge abut this course and the research society working in this domain.
