The SCOR Secretariat will accept proposals for new working groups from now until 15 April 2017. The guidelines, a template, and word limits are available at http://www.scor-int.org/SCOR_WGs_Proposal_Instructions.htm, including a PowerPoint presentation explaining the proposal process.
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.
Please contact Ed Urban (firstname.lastname@example.org) if you have any questions about the process for working group proposals.
