New SPARC activities:
If you are thinking of starting a new SPARC activity, please contact the SPARC Office or one of the Co-Chairs with a brief (about 1 page) description of the topic. If initially accepted, a presentation of the proposed new activity will need to be made at the next SPARC SSG (Scientific Steering Group) meeting; these meetings take place annually. It is possible to start an activity at any time of the year.
