1st Internatio​nal workshop on Odor Spaces


Dear colleagues,

we’d like to invite you to the 1st International Workshop on “Odor
spaces”. The goal of this workshop is to deepen our understanding of the
various interdisciplinary aspects of odor spaces: across the chemical,
sensory, perceptual and physical levels. A summary of the workshop,
including a list of confirmed participants is available on the website:


The ultimate aim of the workshop is to produce a series of reviews and
opinion articles on odor spaces, to be published in a peer-reviewed
open-access journal. To facilitate this, we will form focus groups during
the workshop, to elaborate particular aspects of odor spaces independently
and ideally draft an article outline.

We particularly encourage posters and talks related to the construction
and/or analysis of olfactory related experimental or chemical databases
that will be essential to making future progress on the odor space problem.

The workshop will take place on Sep 4-7th 2013 at the beautiful location
of Herrenhausen Palace in Hannover, Germany. The number of participants is
limited to 60. One third of the places are reserved for young
investigators, PhD students and postdocs. Full board accommodation will
be provided. There is a possibility that we will be able to provide a
limited number of travel grants. Please indicate whether you need travel
support in your application.

To apply, please send an abstract (500 words max) of your presentation
(post/short talk) and a statement of motivation including your
contribution to the field (1 page max) to apply@odorspaces2013.org .
Participants will be selected on the basis of their abstracts, their
motivation to attend the meeting and their past contribution to the field.

Deadline for applications is July 4th, 2013.

Applicants will be notified on the success of their application until July
11th, 2013.
