Dear SIG Convenors,

The SIG events will be held on Wednesday 12th March 2025. We invite you to send us an expression of interest before 16th September 2024, please let us know:

  • If you will be organizing a SIG event:
  • if the event will be run as half a day (2.5 hours) or a full day (5 hours);
  • if the event is half a day, would you prefer;
    • the morning 9:30 to 12:00 or
    • afternoon 13:00 to 15:30
  • are you flexible? The conference venue can host up to 22 parallel SIG events, depending on demand you might be kindly asked to shorten your meeting to half a day or move it to the morning or afternoon timing.

In the first instance please send us an expression of interest, to Andrea Wagner, [email protected] before September 16th answering the points above. In November we will come back to you and ask for an abstract for the program.

About the SIG events:

The SIG events are held on the first day of the conference. Each year we are seeing more SIG's holding an event. We have seen a rapid increase in the number of SIGs wanting to hold an event at ECSWR, which we welcome. However, so that the ECSWR host can manage this event effectively it has become necessary to put in place some guidelines. SIG convenors will be asked for an expression of interest as above, please note after the deadline it will not be possible to include a SIG in the program.

The fees for the SIG event are here.

The fees for the SIG events are very reasonable, this is reflected in the services that the host university can offer. The host will provide:

  • A meeting room, with the usual AV but no technical support.
  • Tea and coffee although this may be limited and light lunch for those holding an all-day meeting.

Convenors meeting:

A convenors' meeting will be held during Conference this is a chance to give a brief update about SIG activities, and some discussion about the development of SIG. However, if there are specific issues you would like to discuss please don't hesitate to contact Liz Frost, SIG Development Committee Chair via [email protected].

We look forward to hearing from you, in the meantime if you have any questions about the SIG events contact Andrea Wagner, [email protected] or if you have general enquiries about SIGs please email [email protected]
