2013 Call for SCOR Working Group Proposals


The 41st SCOR Executive Committee Meeting will take place in Wellington, New Zealand on 25-27 November 2013. Details about the meeting will be posted at http://www.scor-int.org/2013EC/2013EC.htm as they become available.

The SCOR Secretariat will accept proposals for new working groups from now until 15 May 2013. Model proposals and other information about working groups can be found at http://www.scor-int.org/wkgrpinfo.htm. It is very important that individuals wishing to submit a proposal submit a draft before the deadline so that obvious problems in the proposal can be identified before the proposal is submitted officially.

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, as described in the appended document. National SCOR committees are an important aspect of SCOR’s operation and can play a key role in reviewing working group proposals and in seeking new funds to pay for working group activities.

Proponents who wish to attend the 2013 SCOR meeting are welcome to do so, but should be aware that they 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.

Please contact Dr. Edward R. Urban Jr. if you have any questions about the process for working group proposals.
