ZiF Workshops serve the interdisciplinary exchange of ideas on a short-term basis. They range from colloquia on specific questions which assemble smaller circles of experts from neighboring disciplines to larger-scale conferences which discuss the state of the art in a particular interdisciplinary field. The number of participants may range between ten and eighty.
ZiF Author's Colloquia are a special type of workshop, featuring an eminent scholar whose work has significantly influenced the world of science or its perception within society. They create a platform for discussions and critique by selected experts.
