GLOW funding received; what an inspiration!

March 23, 2014

The deadline for the LISSIM 8 essay is now extended to 5th April, 2014, mid-night IST (Indian Standard Time), on popular deamands, as they say. However, applications received by tonight (the original deadline), will be processed and an early short-list will be published by the same date, i.e., the extended deadline of 5th April; this is to aid in visa and ticketing processes that overseas participants may have to undergo. Prospective participants who have already submitted their essays but who may wish to re-work on their essays may do so, just sent us an email withdrawing your submission for the time being.

March 3, 2014

Due to an unavoidadble delay, the deadline for the LISSIM 8 essay is 23rd march, 2014, mid-night IST (Indian Standar Time). Essay details posted as of today

March 2, 2014

As in the case of LISSIM7, we are applying fr fnding the School to CIIL, Mysore and GLOW.

March 3, 2014

Booking early is extremely important, there have been cases of both faculty and student missing a particular school because of not booking early enough. Booking usually open three months in advance, which means if you want to travel on May 22th, you must book your train tickets from Feb 22nd onwards, and usually within the first 2-3 days, all the berths in AC compartments fill up. More.

Since we are changing our venue after three years, not much is known about the ups and downs of this place, however, it is clear that it is quite up and cool!


I am writing this letter in support of the funding request by the organizers of LISSIM. I taught at LISSIM last year. I thoroughly enjoyed the experience and I am grateful to the Central Institute of Indian Languages for making the event possible with their funding. Read more
