2015 Call for SCOR Working Groups
The 2015 SCOR Annual Meeting will take place in Goa, India on 7-9 December 2015. Details about the meeting will be posted at http://scor-int.org/SCOR_EC_2015.html as they become available.
The SCOR Secretariat will accept proposals for new working groups from now until 15 June2015. The guidelines, a template, and word limits are available at http://www.scorint.org/Working_Groups/WG_Proposal_Instructions.docx.
Each proposal will be evaluated by national SCOR committees in terms of scientific merit andquality, timeliness, and achievability of the proposed terms of reference. National SCOR committees are an important aspect of SCOR’s operation and play a key role in reviewing working group proposals and in seeking new funds to support working group activities.
Annual SCOR meetings are open, but anyone submitting a proposal or included in a proposedworking group membership will be asked to leave the room when their proposal is discussed. SCOR started this practice in 2005 to avoid any appearance of favoritism toward proposals that are represented at the meeting by a proponent.
