This year's annual meeting of the Scientific Committee on Oceanic Research (SCOR) will take place at Guayaquil, Ecuador, 19-23 October 2020.
As per previous years, SCOR will be accepting proposals for new SCOR Working Groups.
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.
The call is expected to open officially on 15 February 2020. These proposals are very competetive, so potential applicants are advised to begin familiarising themselves with the application guidelines. Proposal instructions, a narrated PowerPoint, templates and more are available on their instructions page.
