A large number of new Indian Institutes of Science Education & Research (IISERs), IITs and Central Universities have been started recently in India. All these institutions and existing academic institutions require outstanding faculty members in mathematics and computer science. The primary goal of this meeting is to inform junior faculty, post-docs and senior graduate students in the US about academic opportunities available in India and motivate them to return to India. A delegation from India representing a wide cross-section of institutes and universities will make presentations on various aspects of an academic career in India. Prof. K. R. Sreenivasan of NYU, the former director of ICTP, Trieste will also present an external perpective of challenges in science in India.
We also anticipate that younger participants will make brief presentations on their work.
