We'd like to let you know that the SCOR Secretariat invites proposals for new working groups from now until 23:59 UTC on 17 May 2024. The guidelines, a template, and word limits are available at https://scor-int.org/work/groups/proposals/, 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, appropriateness for SCOR, 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. The selection of the new SCOR working groups will take place at the 2024 SCOR Annual Meeting which is scheduled to take place in Qingdao, China on 16-18 October 2024. Details about the meeting will be posted at the SCOR website https://scor-int.org/ as they become available.
