The 2011 Call for Exploratory Workshop proposals is open.

Deadline: 26 May 2011 (16:00 CET)

Each year, ESF supports approximately 50 Exploratory Workshops across all scientific domains.

These small, interactive output oriented meetings are aimed at opening up new directions in research to explore emerging research fields with potential impact on new developments in science. The workshops, which usually last 1-3 days, have a wide participation from across Europe and involve mature scientists as well as young, independent researchers and scholars with leadership potential. The relatively small scale (in terms of people involved) provides an ideal platform for focus on the topic and for all participants to contribute to discussions and plan follow-up collaborative work.
