The Mysore Park Workshop series is a forum to promote research discussion in Computer Science and Engineering in India, through workshops on contemporary topics modeled after the Dagstuhl Workshop series. These workshops are envisioned to invite leading researchers from various related disciplines to promote cross-fertilization of ideas, and inter-disciplinary research. There is particular emphasis on the overall quality of discussion. To keep quality high, participation is limited to experts from academia and industry. A significant attempt is made to disseminate the discussion inside India by inviting PhD students, young researchers and practitioners from India.
Mr. N. R. Narayana Murthy has generously offered to create this series at the Infosys Mysore campus, and provided partial funding for the workshops. MSR India has offered funding for the series. Other active partners include the Indian Association For Research In Computing Science (IARCS) and Indraprastha Institute for Information Technology, Delhi.
