ESOS will take place at the "Institut d'Etude Scientific de Cargèse" (IESC) in France (Corsica).
Schools and workshops held at the Institute have frequently seeded the roots of major advances in physics and related disciplines. Typically 30 scientific events take place at the IESC per year; these attract 1500-2000 participants from all over the world.
Though physics remains the privileged theme for schools and conferences, during the last ten years the Institute opened up to all disciplines. These include :
- Health and Life Science
- Physics and Engineering Sciences
- Humanities and Social Sciences
- Earth and Environmental Sciences
- Materials Science and Engineering
