Travel Grant Awardees

2012

Mr. Partha S. Pal of the Indian Centre For Space Physics presented his work on "Comptonization efficiencies of the variability classes of GRS 1915+105" at the International Conference on Astrophysics and Cosmology which was held from 19-21 March 2012 in Kathmandu, Nepal.

2011

Our 2011 travel grant awardees presented their work at POLYCHAR 19 in Kathmandu and IWPSD in Kanpur:

2010

SAPF sponsored seven Indian physics students to give presentations at the International Conference on Accretion and Outflow in Black Hole Systems from 11-15 October 2010 in Kathmandu, Nepal. Congratulations to:

Mr. Dipak Debnath, Indian Centre for Space Physics
Mr. Sudip Garain, S. N. Bose National Centre for Basic Sciences
Mr. Himadri Ghosh, S. N. Bose National Centre for Basic Sciences
Mr. Kinsuk Giri, S. N. Bose National Centre for Basic Sciences
Ms. Chandreyee Maitra, Indian Institute of Science, Bangalore
Mr. Santanu Mondal, Indian Centre for Space Physics
Ms. Archana Soam, Aryabhatta Research Institute of Observational Sciences (ARIES)

SAPF also sponsored Mr. Md. Abul Hossion, graduate student at the University of Dhaka, who presented his work at the International Conference on Fiber Optics and Photonics at IIT Guwahati, India, from 11-15 December.

2009

SAPF's first supported student was Mr. Abu Zafur Ziauddin Ahmed, PhD student in physics at the University of Dhaka, who presented his paper "Calculation of the Resistivity of Amorphous Metals: A New Approach" at the Silver Jubilee Conference on Communications Technologies and VLSI Design in Vellore, India, October 6-10, 2009. We are comforted that Prof. Hussain was able to participate in approving his application. Mr. Ahmed wrote of his experience at the conference:

My presentation was in the Day-II of the conference in the session titled "Materials for Advanced Semiconductor Devices". The session was chaired by Prof. S. Deleonibus. My work was highly appreciated by Prof. Samar Saha and Dr. Kurt Stokbro. They also suggest me to apply our model to study the electrical transport properties of semiconductor materials.
and at the pre-conference tutorial on VLSI design:
The courses were designed such a way that even as a novice in the area I have got no serious difficulties to follow the lectures. All the speakers gave a brief and clear over view of the current progress, methodology and scope of future research on VLSI design. Perticularly the lectures of Prof. K. S. Ramanujan on "Automated logic Synthesis for VLSI" were very encouraging for me.


Best wishes to all the supported students for continued success in their scientific careers.
