Pulsar Observatory for Students 2012
The program consists of two stages. The first part involves a two day workshop, to be held at the Radio Astronomy Centre (RAC), Ooty, Tamil Nadu during June 11-12, 2012. It will have lectures on the basics of Radio and Pulsar Astronomy (both theoretical and observational aspects), future prospects and excitements in the field  and hands on experiments, relevant for observing  pulsars with a radio telescope.
The second stage involves live Ooty Radio Telescope (ORT) observations of  certain   selected Pulsars by the workshop participants.   The second stage will be pursued by four batches of you during various academic breaks between June 2012 and December 2012. This is mainly because the ORT is usually subscribed for other science goals so live Pulsar observations by all the workshop participants at one epoch will not be very educative. Therefore, we have created four slots during which four batches of  participants can use the ORT  for Pulsar observations.
It is expected that each batch will contain around 6-8 workshop participants and these slots selected keeping in mind your various academic breaks.
