Is it possible to allow for more participants to attend the Study Hub at IUCAA Pune? I see that the registrations are closed, however, I was wondering if I can be informed regarding some opening or extension in capacity for the study hub.
I am Saksham Chandna, an MS thesis student from IISER Bhopal.

Hi! Would you be allowing more participants in the study hub? Or would it be possible to host more than one study hub simultaneously at TIFR? Kindly look into these possibilities. I would love to have a chance to attend an in-person study hub.

Hi, I am interested to join this virtual study hub. I have submitted the google form.

Hello, I am Chinmay from Pune.
Since the IUCAA hub has filled up, I thought of starting another hub. IUCAA has a lot of experienced GW analysts and researchers. Could one of them please help us out in this new hub as well?

Thanking in advance!
