[CALL] ESI: Thematic Programme


Deadline: 2020-06-01

As a rule, the ESI schedules four to six thematic programmes and several workshops each year.

Proposals should be submitted in PDF-format to

A proposal must contain:

  • The names of the organizers, including a local organizer
  • A proposed time slot (programmes usually 1 - 3 months, workshops usually 1 or 2 weeks)
  • A brief but precise description of the scientific aims of the programme or workshop, about 2 - 3 pages in length
  • A list of scientists to be invited including some key contributors who ideally have already expressed their intention to participate
  • A description of potential interactions with local scientists and/or programmes at other institutions
  • An indication of additional sources of funding for participants including post-docs

Programme proposals will be presented to the members of the International Scientific Advisory Board of the ESI to be discussed by them at their annual meeting (usually in June/July of the year n-2 ). The Director of the ESI will then communicate the subsequent decisions on the submitted programme proposals to the applicants. At the same time he will allocate time slots to the accepted programmes and inform the successful applicants of the level of funding granted to them.

The extent of financial support for scientific programmes by the ESI will typically be in the range of EUR 36.000 - 84.000 (corresponding to 15 - 35 person-months)
