Proposers have seven (7) different workshop formats to choose from. Alternatively, they can propose a new format. The format must be clearly described in the workshop proposal. MAG members will evaluate workshop proposals against the basic criteria:
The six major criteria in the evaluation process will centre around:
- Content and description
- Response to policy question(s)
- Relevance to IG and to focus area
- Approach to encouraging participation
Below is a description of each format and criteria. Please read this information while developing your workshop proposal.
*Please also note: rooms may have fixed furniture with no possibility of re-configuration. The Secretariat will do everything possible to make appropriate room assignments, but organizers must exercise flexibility in their planning and should be ready to work with the room they are assigned.
