The workshop is open to young research workers from all countries. One of the main purposes of the college is to help research workers from developing countries; however, scientists from developed countries are also strongly encouraged to attend. Participants should preferably have completed several years of study and research after a first degree. As the colleges will be conducted in English, participants should have an adequate working knowledge of the language. Applications from graduate students about to finish their Ph.D., fresh post-docs, and young active faculty members are encouraged.

Registration fee for Iranians participants of the workshop is 100.000 Rials which includes lunch. The registration fee of non Iranian participants would be  US$ 300 and it  covers full board and lodging for 5 nights.  Payment towards registration fee should be made after receiving the letter of acceptance. 

Travel expenses of participants are borne by their home institutions. However, limited funds are available for some participants from developing countries, who will be selected by the organizers. Such financial support is available only to those who attend the entire activity and is paid to the participants upon their arrivals to Tehran. As scarcity of funds allows travel to be granted only in a few exceptional cases, every effort should be made by candidates to secure support for their fares (or at least half-fare) from their home country. 

The student participants must have at least one letter of recommendation from their university professor sent through fax or mail (post) right after sending their application.

Those wishing to participate should complete and return the Application Form together with the Visa Form.

Participants interested in presenting posters are expected to send a copy of the abstracts by 20 March, 2005. 


Deadline for receiving non Iranian requests: 15 February, 2005. 

Deadline for receiving  Iranian requests: 12 March, 2005 (22 Esfand, 1383).
