NATO Advanced Study Institutes

An Advanced Study Institute (ASI) is a high-level teaching activity where a carefully defined subject, systematically presented, is treated in depth by lecturers of international standing, and new advances in a subject, not taught elsewhere, are reported in tutorial form. A NATO ASI is not intended to be an international conference or symposium, but rather a short course contributing to the dissemination of knowledge and the formation of international scientific contacts. The teaching in ASIs is aimed at scientists at the postdoctoral level with an appropriate scientific background who wish to learn of recent developments in their fields of science.

NATO experience has shown that ASIs should have a minimum duration of 10 working days in order to give adequate time for the development of a topic and allow for sufficient interaction between the scientists. The presentation of contributed papers at ASIs is normally limited to a maximum of one half day. If the programme includes poster sessions these should normally take place in the evening.

Calendar of the NATO 2000 Advanced Study Institutes:

Each meeting is held under the responsibility of its individual director(s): all requests for information, attendance or support should therefore be addressed to the contact person listed.

Note: Participation or tuition fees are not required from participants; some participants from NATO countries or Partner countries (the Commonwealth of Independent States and countries of Central and Eastern Europe) may obtain grants from the meeting director to assist with travel and living expenses.
