IUVSTA Workshops

Last updated 3 November 2006

The IUVSTA Workshop programme was established to provide a forum for intense scientific debate and discussion between a small number of experts in a focused scientific field which falls within the area of activity of the Scientific Divisions of IUVSTA. The purpose of the Workshop programme is scientific rather than educational. The format is intended to be rather similar to that of the US Gordon Conferences; specifically that they are informal, involve all delegates living together, typically in a relatively remote site (i.e. not in a large city), are small enough and long enough to ensure active debate (i.e. less than 100 delegates and typically 5 days duration). In order to guarantee the financial stability of such a meeting these meetings are supported by a contribution from the IUVSTA STD Discretionary Fund, currently to a maximum of 10,000 Swiss Francs. They are organized by one or more of the Scientific Divisions.
