The main goal of scientonomy workshops is to discuss contentious open modifications and either reach a common verdict or, at minimum, provide some insight as to how these modifications can be altered to become acceptable. As opposed to the seminar format, the workshop's primary objective is consensus formation.
Normally, any suggested modification is evaluated on its respective discussion page of this encyclopedia. In some cases, the community agrees that the modification is to be accepted/not accepted. However, there are cases, when a modification causes disagreement and no consensus emerges regarding its verdict. The purpose of the workshop format is to provide a venue for the scholars with opposing views to work together and reach a consensus regarding those modification which caused disagreement.
The Institute for the History and Philosophy of Science and Technology, University of Toronto, plans to organize scientonomy workshops annually or more of often, if necessary.

The first workshop will be organized as disagreements in the scientonomy community concerning suggested modifications accumulate. When there is a sufficient number of contentious modifications, these modifications will be discussed in a workshop.
