Science workshops are an essential component of ESO's programmes and
represent a unique opportunity to promote and foster ideas and
collaborations within the scientific community. Every year, through the
Directorate for Science, ESO provides support and funding to organise
scientific workshops in Santiago and in Garching, as well as co-funding some
external workshops including meetings in Sydney in 2019 and Perth in 2020

<https://protect-au.mimecast.com/s/B-FDCP7LAXf4ABz81C01rsD?domain=eso.org> new Call has
been issued inviting astronomers to submit proposals for ESO workshops to be
held in 2023, either standalone or teaming up with ESO staff and fellows in
Chile <https://protect-au.mimecast.com/s/72WrCQnMBZf64nvM1uMp3aR?domain=eso.org>  and/or
in Germany <https://protect-au.mimecast.com/s/g6AlCROND2urPw4jDUO9FDv?domain=eso.org> .
Note that ESO has implemented a
<https://protect-au.mimecast.com/s/ZzwRCVARKgCljVqNnhQdcKZ?domain=eso.org> Code of
Conduct for Workshops and Conferences, which applies to all meetings funded
by ESO, hosted at ESO premises or organised as online events.   

The deadline for workshop proposals is 5 September 2022. The proposal should
describe the scientific area to be covered by the workshop and the format
(e.g. expected number of participants, location, organising committee,
keynote speakers) using the form provided
is no need to contact potential SOC members or invited speakers formally at
this stage. When planning your workshop, please take into account that ESO
has inserted diversity and inclusion as one of the core goals of the
organisation. As such, ESO strives to achieve diversity in all its form
including, but not exclusively, gender and career stages in every
organisational aspects, including representation on the organising
committees, session chairs, and through invitations to high quality
speakers. To monitor the success of this policy the Offices for Science will
be collecting demographic information of participants for all 2023 ESO

Proposed workshops will be evaluated by a committee of ESO Faculty
astronomers. The selection committee will rank the proposals based on the
scientific timeliness and the perceived benefit to ESO's programmes and
community. If approved and if the workshop is co-chaired by both astronomers
(external and ESO proposers), the ESO staff will act as the local point of
contact (LOC) for those workshops taking place at ESO premises. For further
information please contact Paola Andreani ( <mailto:pandrean at eso.org>
pandrean at eso.org) or Itziar De Gregorio Monsalvo ( <mailto:idegrego at eso.org>
