Welcome to Indian Summer School on Cellular Automata 2024

An internship Program on Cellular Automata: Theory and Applications

Last Date of Registration : 15th May, 2024
Program Duration: 20th May 2024 - 19th July 2024
         27th May 2024 - 26th July 2024


The Indian Summer School on Cellular Automata was started in 2021 as a virtual internship program to train young cellular automata enthusiasts from multi-disciplinary domains on the theory and applications of cellular automata. Three previous versions of the summer school, 2021, 2022 and 2023 have been successfully completed. This free internship programme which lasts for almost two months, is rigorously research based and follows strict evaluation criteria. The previous Summer School was organized by Cellular Automata India in association with University of Béjaïa, Algeria.

The duration of the summer school is of two months containing two phases.

First phase consists of one month of theory classes. Theory class will contain regular assignments which the participants have to submit on time to continue. At the end of the theory course, there will be a written test. Participants have to qualify this test to be eligible for the second phase.
Second phase contains one month of research-oriented project work. Only the eligible participants from the written test will be assigned a project and a mentor. A group of participants may be assigned the same project to work as a team.
There will be weekly evaluation of the project work. The assigned project is research oriented and may not be completed within this one month period. The participants need to agree that they will continue working on the project with the respective mentors and complete it within a stipulated time. Only after completion of the project and submission of the outcome as a research article, she/he will be provided the internship certificate subject to endorsement from the mentor about the completion of the work.

Indian Summer School on Cellular Automata 2024
