- Next Conferences:
Discussion about the text of the Call for next conference organisers – 2021-2023.
Draft accepted with few corrections. Deadline will be April 30th, decisions to be made in the June meeting. Official communication at the AGM in Porto. (to the organizers after the June meeting) Applications can be made for a specific year, or for all years. In the later case it’s up to the EC to choose the year.
The Call will be send via our list and put on our website. After that we will spread it similarly to the CfPs for our conferences and spread via our channels of communications. We will use the list of the Porto CfP to coordinate the distribution among us.
- Porto Conference
Response of the Porto organizers about our answer regarding their need for help with the election of abstracts (vid the Minutes of last meeting, AZ + CSB)
A lot of work was done in the selection processes and we thank the organizers for that.
We suggest to send the comments that were written during this process to the applicants in order to approve their presentations, but it is up to them if they want to do this.
The applicants will be informed by March 1st.
We accept the rejections, although we consider these decisions to be the responsibility of the organizers, not of the EC.
Lots of information for the newsletter was received. The next one will be send out in a couple of weeks.
We have a number of nominations for the book award, but not a single one for an article. We will remind members of this category in the next newsletter.
PR will get in contact with Steven Price, who as editor of the JoS should have a good overview about articles to be published during the timespan eligible for the award.
- Other business
We discussed the option of an additional page on our website for Early Carrier Researchers. The EC prefers to focus on social media in this case instead of putting up a new page with not enough content.
CSB will represent SRN with the Yearbook of International Organizations, a publication of the Union of International Associations, http://www.uia.org/yearbook
Next meeting. Wednesday March 20 at 21:30 Vienna time.
