Workshops + Regional Meetings

The first three days of ISTS41 (18th - 20th March) are dedicated to Workshops and Regional Meetings.

Workshops

The format for a Workshop is determined by its organiser and can be a half- (morning or afternoon) or full day in duration. Each room allocated for a Workshop at the ISTS41 venue has capacity for 150 seated in a theatre style layout or 80 if seated within a classroom style with tables. If you believe your Workshop will need additional space then please indicate this on your proposal.

If you would like to submit a proposal to organise a Workshop at ISTS41 then please select the button below. Note that the deadline for submitting a workshop proposal is 3rd October 2022. Required information includes the following:

      • Workshop Title
      • Details of Organisers
      • Suggested workshop duration: Full day (9:00 – 18:00), half day (9:00 – 13:00 or 14:00 – 18:00)
      • Expected (or desired) number of participants
      • Description and justification (approx. 300 words). Note that this text will also appear in the Program.
      • Expected outcomes (approx. 300 words)
      • Required audio-visual (AV) equipment

Proposals will be assessed by a three-member workshop committee, supervised by the ISTS President and an appointed member of the ISTS Board of Directors. Selection will depend on theme priorities determined by the ISTS President and the overall merit of each proposal. For any further queries or questions about the Workshops then please email us.

Please note that due to budget restrictions, the ISTS Board of Directors has determined that only a limited number of workshops (6-8) will have their A/V costs covered by the Symposium Organizers. The number of funded workshops will be finalized based on funds available, the number of proposals submitted and the total workshop duration requested in proposals received. Proposals will be assessed by a three-member workshop committee, supervised by the ISTS President and an appointed member of the ISTS Board of Directors. Selection will depend on theme priorities determined by the ISTS President, the overall merit of the each proposal, and funding provided as matching grants.
There will be a possibility for more workshops to be organized during the days prior to the main meeting. Total number of workshop sessions is dependent on available space at the venue. However, the organizers for these sessions are expected to fully cover the associated AV costs, estimated at US$650.00 per day (laptop, projector, tripod screen, power package), which may be reduced to US$550.00 if organizers provide their own laptop computer.
