According to the rules of NATO's Cooperative Science and Technology Sub-Programme, the aims of an ASI are to promote the dissemination of scientific information, to impart experience and to foster professional contacts among scientists.

ASI directors organize advanced meetings of a tutorial character, typically of a duration of 10 working days (in our case 11 working days), involving 12 to 15 lecturers with an audience of 60 to 80 post-doctoral level ASI "students" of whom 40% to 50% are from Partner or Mediterranean Dialogue countries. This implies that each lecturer optimally presents 3 lectures of one hour duration each.

Currently, for the purposes of NATO ASIs,

  • NATO countries are: Belgium, Canada, Czech Republic, Denmark, France, Germany, Greece, Hungary, Iceland, Italy, Luxembourg, the Netherlands, Norway, (Poland), Portugal, Spain, Turkey, UK, USA
  • Partner countries are: Albania, Armenia, Azerbaijan, Belarus, Bulgaria, Estonia, Georgia, Kazakhstan, Kyrghyz Republic, Latvia, Lithuania, Moldova, Poland, Romania, Russian Federation, Slovak Republic, Slovenia, Tajikistan, the former Yugoslav, Republic of Macedonia (Turkey recognizes the Republic of Macedonia with its constitutional name), Turkmenistan, Ukraine, Uzbekistan
  • Mediterranean Dialogue countries are: Egypt, Israel, Jordan, Mauritania, Morocco, Tunisia

Funds are provided to the ASI directors to cover organizational expenditures, the travel and living expenses of lecturers and to contribute to the travel and living expenses of the ASI students. ASIs are co-directed by a scientist from a Partner or a Mediterranean Dialogue country (Prof. Ashot Akhperjanian) and a scientist from a NATO country (Dr. Elisa Shahbazian).

The calendar
of other NATO ASIs is constantly updated. Of possible interest to the community of people expected to participate in this ASI is "Photopolarimetry in Remote Sensing" , 20 Sep 2003 - 03 Oct 2003. Yalta, Ukraine. In addition several NATO Research and Technology Agency (RTA) Symposia can be of interest to the community attending this ASI.
