Workshop on Scilab

Funded by the National Mission on Education through ICT
Jointly organized by
Bhaskaracharya Pratishthana, Pune and IIT, Bombay

Venue: Bhaskaracharya Pratishthana, Pune.
Dates: 4th July to 7th July, 2009

Scilab is Open source Software for Mathematics, specially for Numerical computations.

NOTE: limited Seats . Those who applied for earlier workshop and did not get the admission, preference will be given to them. Those who attended the earlier Scilab workshop need not apply for this Second Scilab workshop.

The study of the software Scilab is incorporated in the syllabus of some of the Universities in Maharashtra for undergraduate courses. The software is very useful for teaching and learning of Mathematics at the undergraduate level. Also, Scilab is a good alternative to a commercial software like Matlab.

With this view, the current workshop will be useful to College teachers of Mathematics. Lectures and Lab sessions will be arranged to make participants familiar with Scilab. Focus will be on topics such as Linear Algebra and Numerical Analysis.


  • Prof. Kannan, Prof. Madhu Belur, Prof. Prabhu Ramachandran from IIT Bombay,
  • Prof. S. A .Katre from Pune University.
  • Mrs. Mangala Bhopatkar, Mrs. Manjusha Joshi, Mrs. P. Pingle from BP.

The workshop is intended for teachers of Mathematics in the colleges under University of Pune and Mumbai. There is a registration fee of Rs. 250/- per participant. Participants will get a CD containing Scilab and other Open Source Mathematical software.

Each college can send at most 2 teachers, one from B.Sc. (Comp. Sc.) and other from B.Sc. Mathematics. Admission will be on first come first serve basis. The number of seats is limited.

Those who intend to participate should send e-mail to bhaskara_p at, or may call to Mrs. Manjusha Joshi, Coordinator  (4 pm - 7 pm) Bhaskaracharya Pratishthana Office (020- 25434547).
