27-31 January 2015, 1st Indian Winter School on Diagrams, Kolkata, India

Date: 27-31 January 2015
Location: Kolkata, India

The 1st Indian Winter School on Diagrams aims to bring together graduate students and early career researchers, from all over the world, with interests in diagrams research. Participation from all researchers, regardless of career stage, is welcomed. The week-long school will provide accessible courses on the state-of-the-art in diagrams research, covering two main themes: diagrammatic logics alongside philosophical and historical developments. Courses will be delivered by internationally renowned experts to small groups of delegates and will have an emphasis on interactivity.

The School aims to enable delegates to begin research into diagrams by introducing them to current research and through thought-provoking exchanges and discussions. The experienced facilitators will tease out research questions that are appropriate for early-stage researchers to tackle, providing a starting point for a research career in diagrammatic reasoning. Delegates will be encouraged to identify collaboration opportunities both with other delegates and the course facilitators. It is expected that delegates who attend the winter school will become equipped to identify research questions in the diagrams field and be knowledgeable of current research endeavours. The School will also include one-on-one discussion sessions where delegates can meet with the expert facilitators to identify suitable research contributions that match their skills and interests.
