Bids to host the next ICP
The next ICP could be in your town! Bids to host the next ICP will be held on the Wednesday 3rd of September.
Partnership with TOS
Since its creation in 1983, the International Conference on Paleoceanography (ICP) has relied on volunteers for its organization without any administrative support from an association.
The Oceanography Society (TOS, https://www.tos.org/) has offered to administer the ICP starting after the end of the ICP13. The role of TOS would be to support the ICP planning committee and local hosts by providing administrative and logistical support, as well as maintaining records and processes that will facilitate planning and management of future ICP events. Services provided by TOS staff include, but are not limited to: conference site selection and vendor contracting; financial management; submission of grant proposals and sponsorship applications; website creation and updates; online registration/abstract submission; coordination of abstract review/program scheduling, program/mobile app creation, and onsite conference management. It is expected that TOS involvement would ease the organization of the ICP, enable an efficient data/knowledge transfer and very importantly enable the perennity of the conference. The ICP scientific and local organizing committees will still independently define the program of the conference.
