The next deadline for applications for financial support for workshops and meetings will be 11 September 2023.
This proposal form is only for workshops/meetings being organized by officially approved PAGES working groups.
To be considered for PAGES' support, applications should meet the following criteria:
- Relevance to PAGES' Science Structure
- International participation. Please keep in mind travel restrictions when choosing a meeting location and consider alternative ways of participation for those unable to travel, i.e. recording major presentations, having online presentations via Skype, etc.
- Open i.e. offering an opportunity for interested colleagues to register or submit an application
- Multi-disciplinary involvement
- Data Stewardship
- Forward thinking
- Aiming to integrate, coordinate, and/or synthesize
- Encouraging the participation of early-career scientists (until ca. 5 years after PhD) and those from low- and middle-income countries.
All applications should be submitted at least six months before the planned event date, to allow for wide promotion to the paleo community. Exceptions will be considered by the Executive Committee.
The working group's designated SSC liaison person must be contacted at least two weeks before this proposal is submitted to advise them of the group's plans.
PAGES is encouraging a data availability policy and safe archiving of data. Please be sure this is done within the framework of your workshop. See here for more details.
PAGES support of working group workshops/meetings will be a maximum of US$12,000. In rare cases, where a very good case is made, funding may be extended to a maximum of US$15,000.
