Call for Proposals

Scientists who are interested in organizing a Scientific Program or Topical Workshop are invited to submit a proposal

Submission and Dates

Any proposals should be submitted using our Submission Form. You are strongly encouraged to contact the Scientific Coordinator for any questions coming along in the process of composing your proposal.

Call for Proposals for 2019 is closed. Proposals for the 2020 Scientific Programs should be submitted by January 31, 2019 for full consideration. Proposals for Topical Workshops can be submitted throughout the year, normally 6 months before the event.

Evaluation Process

All proposals will be evaluated by the MITP Advisory Board consisting of leading scientists from all relevant areas. MITP specifically supports proposals fostering interactions between different communities which traditionally do not have strongly established ties.

External Organizers

External organizers are expected to stay at Mainz for a significant portion of the MITP activity. There should be always at least two of the organizers present.

Structure of the Proposal

A proposal for a Scientific Program or Topical Workshop should contain:

  • Scientific motivation including arguments on the timeliness of the field, a brief list of scientific goals and the expected impact of the program / workshop (2-3 pages)
  • Names and contact information of up to 4 external organizers
  • List of potential participants and their status of commitment (please consider balance of gender and of career stages)
  • Preferred dates for the program / workshop

Please make use of the MITP proposal templates. For questions related to proposals or the scientific design of MITP activity please contact the MITP Scientific Coordinator.
