SCOR Working Groups

SCOR Working Groups are the mainstay of the SCOR workload. These small international groups - not more than 10 members - are established in response to proposals from national committees for SCOR and other scientific organizations. In general they are designed to address fairly narrowly-defined topics which can benefit from coordinated international attention. Working Groups are expected to provide a final report, organize a workshop or symposium, or otherwise make a significant contribution to advancing the topic at hand within a 3 - 4 year time scale.
