Target Participants

The participants will be selected from applicants that are Masters students, Ph.D. students, post-doctoral fellows and young researchers. Since there should be about 3 or 4 students per lecturer to ensure that there is a strong interaction between the students and their supervisors, the aim is to have 35-40 attendees, with up to 20 participants from Uzbekistan and the rest from other countries in the region. The students from Samarkand that are not staying in the hostel will still be part of all the social activities of the group, including lunch and coffee breaks. The organizers will try to keep a proper balance among male/female students at a similar scientific merit level. These last two aspects are just indicative, since the selection must be based on academic and scientific merits, and not on nationalities or gender.
