Deadline: 1st April 2018The Lounsbery Workshop Award is an annual Society award towards the costs of organising a focussed workshop related to a particular field of deep-sea biology, or related to a cross-cutting issue, in particular training-focussed such as science communication, policy, taxonomy, ‘big-data’ analysis and analytical methods. It is expected that these workshops would be held over 3-4 days involving 10-30 scientists, with the funds being available for any cost associated with the workshop (e.g travel for senior or junior researchers, catering) but excluding institutional meeting room hire and salary costs. The lead applicant (PI) of the application should be a member of the society, but this is not required for the workshop attendees. Applications are encouraged that include a large training component particularly in new techniques or methods, and partnerships with training organisations or companies are welcomed especially if cost-sharing is well demonstrated. The scheme provides up to 4000 GBP towards the costs of the workshop, and successful applicants will be expected to write a short report of the workshop in the open-access flexible journal Research Ideas and Outcomes (the OA fee will be paid by the Society) as well as providing an ongoing twitter feed during the workshop with links and credit to the Society. Workshops must take place within one calendar year on receipt of award.
