2020 Call for SCOR Working Group Proposals

The 2020 SCOR Annual Meeting will take place in Guayaquil, Ecuador on the week of the 19-23 of October 2020. Details about the meeting will be posted on the meeting website as they become available.

The SCOR Secretariat will accept proposals for new working groups from now until 17 April 2020. The guidelines, a template, and word limits are available here, 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.

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, to avoid any appearance of favoritism toward proposals that are represented at the meeting by a proponent. Please contact Patricia Miloslavich if you have any questions about the process for working group proposals.
