Workshops (formerly called 'Small Groups') host from 10 to 40 people and are externally funded.
They enable teams to specialize on an area in particular, or on a problem. They are also popular as a follow-up session after a former larger event or even with the view to celebrate a special event.
Proposals can be placed at any time of the year. Please note, however, that these events take place in parallel with other larger events of 50-90 people (Conferences, Research Schools) which are fixed in the calendar 18 to 24 months before the week of the event in question. It is therefore necessary to find a week that can host both the fixed event and your workshop (taking into consideration that some weeks also host research in pairs or Interface sessions).
Your online proposal is studied remotely by CIRM's international Scientific Committee. A decision is generally rendered within 4 to 6 weeks. If the proposal is accepted, the organizers are contacted by CIRM's Event Coordinator to set the date.
