One of the main functions of the Centre is to provide a platform to organize various activities in theoretical and mathematical sciences, at the forefront of knowledge. Programs in areas overlapping traditional fields of science will be encouraged, keeping in mind that strength in individual disciplines lends to fruitful interdisciplinary collaborations. Besides the traditional areas of activity in mathematical and theoretical sciences, and their interconnections, activities in biological physics, complex systems and computational sciences will be encouraged. An important character of the Centre would be its flexible response to organizing activities in emerging new areas of science.

Here is a set of guidelines for writing program proposals.

The Centre will also support activities that contribute to raising the level of scientific knowledge among Indian university students and faculty. Some of the high level activities will be preceded by pre-schools or instructional workshops, to enable young participants to make the best use of the programs. The aim of these type of activities is to contribute to human resource development in the basic sciences.

Prospective program organizers can submit proposals by filling up this form. The application will be immediately acknowledged and every effort will be made to respond fast to the proposal.

ICTS is currently not accepting proposals beyond Mar 2020. Starting from Jul 2018, we will be revamping the process with a fresh call for proposals during the period Apr 2020 to Sep 2020.
