Organizing a EuroCHRIE Conference

Call for Conference Location 2018

One of my tasks as Director of Conference is to smooth the bidding process to institutions that would like to organize an EuroCHRIE Conference.

Organizing an international conference requires a dedication of time, financial and manpower resources to undertake the planning and execution of a successful event. At the organizer-host will find a complete working document of Bid Document that will help any institution to evaluate whether you are ready to organize an international conference or not. In this sense, the Board approved recently a 100 points questionnaire to simplify the bidding process. Therefore, for 2018 EuroCHRIE Conference onwards the process will be divided into 2 phases:

  • Phase 1

Analyses the feasibility for your institution to organize an EuroCHRIE conference. The emphasis is on general aspects such as manpower, financial control, accessibility, location, conference facilities, security (to mention a few). Your institution should fill in a questionnarie and submit to the Director of Conference 24 months prior to the conference. Once the Conference Committee validates your proposal, you should start phase 2.

  • Phase 2

The organizer-host presents the final Bid Document 18 months prior the conference. The Conference committee should analyse, make suggestions and approve the finalized document.

Every institution should evaluate its proposal with this new questionnaire. It has the following objectives:

  1. To ensure your proposal maintains EuroCHRIE conference quality standard precepts and consistency;

  2. To be a self-assessment guideline for host organizations when planning to organize a EuroCHRIE conference;

  3. To simplify the bidding process, providing information to the EuroCHRIE Board members.

Once the organizer-host should receive EuroCHRIE approval to your questionnaire, the institution should submit a definitive global bidding proposal.

We hope this guide will encourage your university to present a candidacy for organizing a very successful conference in 2018.

Remember the deadline for 2018 Conference is October 2016. We are looking foward to hearing from your proposals soon.
