The International Conference of Women Engineers and Scientists (ICWES) is held every three years. The 17th ICWES (ICWES16) will occur in 2017 in New Delhi, India. Therefore, INWES is seeking complete proposals to host ICWES18 in 2020.
Proposals must provide enough information to assess, for example, the feasibility of the meeting, the potential support and leverage to reduce registration fees, the capacity to host the annual general meeting and the board meetings before and after the conference. Proponents are asked to make sure that the items detailed below in the section called “Responsibilities of Conference Organisers” are well explained with information as to how the various responsibilities will be met.
If more than one proposal is received, then the INWES Conference Committee will make a recommendation to the Board of Directors who will make a decision by a vote. INWES Director(s) directly associated with a proposal will not be allowed to vote due to a potential of conflict of interest. Once the decision is made, within the next six months, a Memorandum of Understanding must be signed between the organisers and INWES to define the activities and the responsibilities of each party.
Proposals should be submitted via e-mail to firstname.lastname@example.org, Margaret Ajibode, Secretary General, before December 31st, 2016, 11:59 EDT.
Looking forward to great proposals,
