We invite sponsors to support the WOTWISI-4 workshop. Sponsorship is an important aspect to make the workshop a success and will help to provide an environment that will facilitate stimulating discussions. Two levels of sponsorship are available. More information here.

We acknowledge greatly the financial support of the following institutions and sponsors:



P2IO is one of the 100 laboratories of excellence (Labex) approved by the French Government in March 2011 within the framework of future investments funded by the large governmental loan, officially called "Grand Emprunt" of 2010. P2IO defines itself as the network of all laboratories in Paris region involved in physics of the infinitely small to the infinitely large and study of conditions for the appearance of life. P2IO acts like as such networks, in a direct way, by funding a number of actions, and more indirectly, by promoting better cooperation between its members and providing a contact point for external partnerships, including those from the Saclay’s Plateau.

Founded in 1971, the aim of the National institute of nuclear and particle physics (IN2P3) of the CNRS is to promote and unify research activities in the fields of nuclear physics, particle and astroparticle physics. It coordinates programmes within these fields on behalf of the CNRS and universities, in partnership with CEA.
The goal of this research is to explore the physics of elementary particles, their fundamental interactions and the manner in which they assemble into atomic nuclei, to study the properties of these nuclei and to explore the connections between the infinitely small and the infinitely large. Whilst these main themes represent the core of the discipline, IN2P3 also has several additional vocations: enabling other scientific domains to benefit from its competencies and solving certain problems posed by society (nuclear energy, healthcare), and accompanying universities in contributing to youngsters’ training.
