Proposal template file

This contains a .tex file with all the needed instructions as comments.

Note that at least one organizer should be part of SwissMAP.

Please contact us if you have any questions.

The selection of events will be made known in December 2020.  

The SwissMAP Research Station is committed to providing equal opportunities and supporting female researchers. The SRS gives great importance to the presence of women among both organizers, speakers and participants of its events. 

The SRS also encourages potential organizers to reflect upon their event’s environmental impact.

Evaluation of the proposals is carried out by a Scientific Council composed of the following scientists:

  • Pr. Giovanni Felder, ETHZ
  • Pr. Matthias Gaberdiel, ETHZ
  • Pr. Kryzstof Gawedski, ENS Lyon
  • Pr. Marcos Beiras Mariño, UniGE
  • Nuriya Nurgalieva, ETHZ
  • Claudia Rella, UniGE
  • Pr. Stanislav Smirnov, UniGE
  • Pr. Chenchang Zhu, Göttingen University

The SRS direction is composed of Pr. Anton Alekseev (UniGe) and Pr. Renato Renner (ETHZ). Dr.Elise Raphael (UniGe) acts as Scientific Officer.

Conferences, workshops and outreach activities selected out of the open call placed by the SwissMAP Research Station will receive subsidies covering full board and accommodation for 5 days for up to 40 people (representing approximately CHF30’000). This support does not cover travel.
For larger events, organizers should provide external funding and/or set up participation fees to cover the extra cost. Exceptions can be made, in particular for outreach events.

Events traditionally start on Monday mornings and end on Friday after lunch, with Sunday evening meal and night included in the offer. Two coffee breaks per day are also provided.
Requests for extended stays and/or persons accompanying conference participants will generate extra cost  that has to be covered by external funding or the participants themselves (details in the proposal template).
