Task Force Proposals

ISEV task forces focus on specific topics with the goal of developing and publishing methods, reviews, statements, or other products that are helpful for the field.

Suggest a New Task Force

You will be asked to propose the following:

  • Topic and scope
  • Chair(s): (usually one, max two); Chair becomes a member of the Rigor and Standardization committee
  • Contributing members (max 30) with evidence of expertise and keeping geographic/subject/gender diversity in mind; non-ISEV members are encouraged with justification
  • Timeline (1-2 yr): might be renewed but finite (not permanent bodies)
  • Anticipated products

Applications will be reviewed at least twice a year by the R&S subcommittee. Not all will be approved. The Rigor and Standardization Sub-Committee or ISEV Board may make changes or suggestions.

What ISEV provides to task forces:

  • Coordination of and between task forces, including a yearly meeting at the annual ISEV conference and three teleconferences per year
  • Communication tools (teleconferences, web page)
  • Potential endorsement and/or financial support of published products
  • Guidance for engagement with other standardization committees, agencies, societies
  • Visibility and transparency
  • Possibility of organizing workshops/seminars/hands-on training sessions
