The Society for Social Medicine would like to invite applications for workshops in any area of social medicine. The nature of social medicine requires a multi-disciplinary approach to the development of scientific knowledge and funding is available for workshops that address an important issue in population health sciences that will particularly build capacity in that area.

Applications for workshops that address substantive topics or methods are acceptable.

Proposals for joint meetings with other societies and organisations are particularly welcomed.

The Society is trialling a new process for assessing and funding one day workshops. Assessment of proposals will be by peer review. Criteria for selection include the timeliness of the topic matter, the ability of the application team to organise a successful event as well as value for money for participants and SSM.

Proposals will be peer reviewed by 2 reviewers and there may be an opportunity to refine the proposal to address any comments and concerns.

Applications should be made via the application form here and sent to secretary.ssm@gmail.com. The deadline for applications is Friday November 4th 2016.
