The Integrated Ocean Drilling Program (IODP) is the premier international research program conducting scientific investigations of Earth through ocean drilling.

IODP invites short proposals for workshops to be held tentatively in 2008 and 2009, on topics either derivative of the IODP Initial Science Plan (download at www.iodp.org/isp), or on other globally important problems that can be addressed during the next phase of IODP ocean drilling.

Proposals should not exceed four pages of text and must include:

  • Overall scientifi c or technical objectives, and their relevance to the ISP;
  • Rationale for drilling as a means of addressing scientifi c questions;
  • Scope of topics to be covered by the workshop;
  • Potential for interactions with other international science programs;
  • Targeted audience/workshop participants (individuals or research groups);
  • Proposed conveners and steering committee members;
  • Suggested timing and location of workshop; and
  • Preliminary budget (potential for funding from other organizations is highly desirable).

Expected deliverables will likely include an Eos meeting report, a detailed workshop report, and an article for Scientific Drilling. Please include a 1-2 page curriculum vitae for each workshop convener (maximum of 5). Submit proposal in pdf format by 1 Feb. 2007 to Kelly Kryc (kkryc@iodp.org).
