Standing Working Groups

The Standing Working Groups (SWG) are small, thematically organized research groups within ISCHE, designed to coordinate research and discussion on a set topic, guided by specific research goals, for a set period of time. SWGs are automatically granted two parallel session slots on the programme of each ISCHE annual conference (in ISCHE Byelaws).

The deadline for submission of papers to any SWG is January 31, 2019.

Proposals should be a maximum of 500 words excluding bibliography.

Please note that all proposals must be submitted through the conference electronic system by selecting the respective SWG in the Abstracts area.
