The board is interested in locations accessible (both geographically and financially) to a large number of European science educators.This includes sufficient economical accommodations in the community for non-institutionally funded attendees.
A venue near or at the organizer’s university facilitates and can help with organization and planning.
Facilities need to be able to accommodate approximately 1200 attendees with a plenary room for about 800, parallel session meeting rooms and eating facilities.
WiFi needs to be widely available in all meeting rooms.The conference is mainly self-funded with a small percentage provided by the ESERA Board.
