2016 Call for SCOR Working Group Proposals
The 2016 SCOR Annual Meeting will take place in Sopot, Poland on 5-7 September 2016.
The SCOR Secretariat will accept proposals for new working groups from now until 17 April 2016. The guidelines, a template, and word limits are available at http://www.scor-int.org/WG_Proposal_Instructions.docx.
Each proposal will be evaluated by national SCOR committees in terms of scientific merit and quality, 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. In addition, the review of working group proposals is open worldwide to partner organizations and individuals who would like to provide comments.
Annual SCOR meetings are open, but anyone submitting a proposal or included in a proposed working 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.
