The Program Administration Proposal, Review, Evaluation, and Submission System (PAPERS) submission system has now closed.

A Cluster is a three-year cooperative alliance of existing Program Units who have a common focus to allow for increased collaboration. Clusters cut across different kinds of Units, and are grouped according to natural affiliations (disciplinary, geographical, or thematic). As a Cluster, Program Units pool some of the sessions allocated to their constituent units to consider a broader focus of proposals and create more dynamic, creative structures and cross-disciplinary sessions. These sessions are accessible to those with only a general knowledge of the subdiscipline.

In an effort to promote sustainability and reduce paper waste, you are highly encouraged to print only the Calls you are most interested in by accessing the individual Calls above and printing from those webpages.
