Standing Working Groups

  • Standing Working Groups (SWGs) are groups which meet regularly at each EGOS Colloquium as a community of scholars.
  • Each SWG will run for four Colloquia.
  • Each SWG to submit a report after the third colloquium (by November 1st) to be assessed by the EGOS Bord.
  • In exceptional cases the Board may decide to continue the SWG for a further specified period.

Applications for the establishment of new Standing Working Groups should be mailed to the EGOS Board or the EGOS Executive Secretariat – – by May 31, 2007. We will honour any submission made this year under the previous deadline of December 31, 2006 since decisions will be taken by the EGOS Board in July 2007. This will allow any successful SWG to participate in the EGOS Colloquium the following year.
