Schloss Dagstuhl – Leibniz-Zentrum für Informatik is accepting proposals for scientific seminars/workshops in all areas of computer science, in particular also in connection with other fields.

If accepted the event will be hosted in the seclusion of Dagstuhl’s well known, own, dedicated facilities in Wadern on the western fringe of Germany. Moreover, the Dagstuhl office will assume most of the organisational/ administrative work, and the Dagstuhl scientific staff will support the organizers in preparing, running, and documenting the event. Thanks to subsidies the costs are very low for participants.

Dagstuhl events are typically proposed by a group of three to four outstanding researchers of different affiliations. This organizer team should represent a range of research communities and reflect Dagstuhl’s international orientation. More information, in particular, details about event form and setup as well as the proposal form and the proposing process can be found on

Schloss Dagstuhl – Leibniz-Zentrum für Informatik is funded by the German federal and state government. It pursues a mission of furthering world class research in computer science by facilitating communication and interaction between researchers.

Important Dates

  • Proposal submission: April 1 to April 15, 2021
  • Notification: July 2021
  • Seminar dates: In 2022/2023 (final dates will be announced later).
