# Genesis

During 2008-2015, twenty-two introductory workshops on graph and geometric algorithms were organized for teachers and students (undergraduate, post-graduate and doctoral) of engineering colleges and universities at different states and union territories of India. The lectures were meant to provide exposure to the field of graph and geometric algorithms and to motivate the participants towards research. Fifty-eight professors from TIFR, IITs, IISc, IMSc, CMI, ISI Kolkata, and other institutes and universities delivered invited lectures on different topics in the design and analysis of algorithms, discrete applied mathematics, computer graphics, computer vision, and robotics (https://arxiv.org/abs/1507.06056).

The first four workshops were funded by TIFR, BRNS and IIT Kharagpur, and the remaining workshops were funded by the NBHM.

ACSDM has originated during these national workshops.
