Call for Proposals for Regional Workshops

ISSBD has a long standing history of organizing regional workshops that help identify and discuss core issues with international and regional approaches and provide opportunities for learning, networking, and professional collaboration (see the list of regional workshops here). Such workshops facilitate collaborations by forming research groups and creating avenues for resource sharing. Regional workshops play a significant role in capacity building of young scholars.

Proposals for organizing such workshops should be sent to Toni Antonucci, President, ISSBD (, along with a preliminary budget. ISSBD provides financial assistance of up to $ 40,000 for approved proposals. The guideline for workshop proposals can be found here.
