Location

Specify whether the meeting is to take place in the UK or in India

Names of the Scientific Organisers

State the names, affiliation and email addresses of the Key Organiser(s) in the Host Country. The proposal shall also identify the relevant person form the other country (UK or India) to act as a Coordinator for that country.

In the case of multi-disciplinary proposals, there may be more than one Organiser from each country. It may be appropriate to give a brief resumé of the accomplishments of each Organiser.

The objectives and importance of the proposed meeting

This is the main part of the proposal, the scientific case. Make sure that the objectives of the meeting are clear and make a strong case for its relevance to both UK and India.

Participants

How will the participants from the UK and India be selected?  (Please include plans for participation of young researchers/ MSc students/ young faculty members, keeping in view the gender balance.)

Dissemination

Organisers are asked to plan for the dissemination of the results of a workshop. They will be required to prepare a short but comprehensive account of workshop activity for publication on the web, together with a final list of participants and schedule, shortly after a programme ends. If there are plans to publish proceedings, then that should be raised at an early stage.

Knowledge transfer and public engagement

Organisers should consider the possibility of reaching a wider audience for the workshop activity.

For workshops to take place in the UK only: organisers will be asked to discuss possibilities for the involvement of commercial beneficiaries of the proposed research with the KT officer at ICMS.

Proposed start/end dates

A meeting should be of the length required to achieve its objectives, but a meeting will normally last 5 working days, excluding journey days.

Probable number of participants

There is no fixed number of participants but it is envisaged that most meetings will have up to 40 participants (with a maximum of 10 international attendees from the ‘visitor’ country).

Possible structure

For example, a Workshop could have expository talks, discussion sessions or problem sessions as well as the more standard one-hour talks.
