Those submitting proposals are encouraged to demonstrate that their objectives address the science priorities of ICES as addressed in the Strategic Plan – and/or the emerging science priorities identified by SCICOM at its 2017 meeting. Applicants are also advised to link their proposals to the topics which are the focus of the steering groups, strategic initiatives, and/or advice.
Applicants are particularly encouraged to propose new formats for their sessions. Options for finding new ways of sharing your science and innovation could include panel discussions, brief introductory slots or keynotes (securing funds is up to conveners), or stakeholder participation.
A theme session example is available to help structure your proposal. Unsuccessful proposals from 2016 will not be considered unless they are resubmitted using the online proposal form.
