Call for proposals for interdisciplinary workshops at the Spin Phenomena Interdisciplinary Center (SPICE) in Mainz. The proposals should arrive at least 8-10 months prior to the proposed workshop date in order to secure a location and external funding to facilitate the workshop. Details on the proposal format (limited to less than 4 pages) can be found at (http://www.spice.uni-mainz. de/workshop-and-school- proposals/).
You can see the activity and impact of SPICE at http://www.spice.uni-mainz.de and view the talks of the workshops at the SPICE YouTube channel.
We encourage applications for a SPICE workshop if you want to organize an interdisciplinary workshop on an emergent field or where two distinct fields or sub-areas are brought together to explore new directions. Also, although a spin-related area is encouraged, its connection does not have to be direct or even present. Hence, most areas of condensed matter physics are being considered as potential workshop topics.
You can contact any of the team members directly or the center at firstname.lastname@example.org to discuss your ideas.
