21 dec 2023

Dear Sirs,

On behalf of the ESOF2024 Program Committee and Ms. Prorector for Science and International Cooperation of the Medical University of Silesia in Katowice, Prof. Dr. Katarzyna Mizia-Stec, we are very pleased to invite you to participate in the EuroScience Open Forum 2024 (ESOF2024) conference. This is one of the most important international scientific events, which will be held in Katowice, Poland, on June 12-15, 2024. The call for abstracts ends on December 31, 2023.

The ESOF2024 conference aims to promote an open debate on science and its fundamental role in society, accessible to a wider audience. This year's edition, titled "Life Changing Science," will specifically focus on the challenges of transformation - energy, environmental, health, social, cultural, digital - and the ways in which leading scientists can respond to these challenges. This is an excellent opportunity to exchange ideas, experiences and jointly seek innovative solutions. The event will bring together scientists and academics, politicians, representatives of public institutions, business and the media, as well as residents to discuss the latest developments in various fields of science and art and the impact they have on our lives.


Guidelines for submitting abstracts to ESOF2024, along with registration instructions, are available at:

ESOF2024 is not only a major scientific event, but also the culmination of the European City of Science 2024 celebrations.

Katowice was the first city in Central Europe to be awarded the title of European City of Science, and as such, it has become an inspiring place for a multifaceted debate where science meets the daily lives of its residents.
