IASLC Workshop Guidelines
The IASLC endorses workshops that focus on thoracic malignancies. Applicants must complete the appropriate application form and provide the required materials as detailed in each form. Incomplete applications will be returned without review. Applicants may request either IASLC endorsement alone (i.e., use of the IASLC logo in meeting materials and a commitment to promote the IASLC before and during the educational event) or IASLC financial support in addition to endorsement. Applicants must submit the completed application form and required materials at least 3 months before the date of the educational activity. Application forms are provided below. The IASLC Education Committee reviews all workshop applications. Review criteria - as required by the IASLC Board of Directors - include the following: emphasis on thoracic oncology, scientific merit, appropriateness of the planning committee or group, adequacy of the proposed agenda/programme, and promotion of the IASLC. The proposed agenda should clearly indicate the topic and proposed lecture title even if a definite speaker has not yet been confirmed (a proposed speaker can be included). Dependent on the proposed educational activity, the following criteria may also apply: multidisciplinary nature of the event and provision of tobacco/smoking cessation as a program element. For applicants requesting financial support, a clear justification is necessary for why funding from the IASLC is being requested. In addition, the application must identify a liaison (preferably an IASLC member) who will be responsible for all interactions with the IASLC and for the submission of a mandatory Post-Meeting Summary Form no more than eight weeks after the end of the educational event. This Post-Meeting Form is provided below. Following review, the Education Committee will recommend either “Approval”, “Provisional Approval”, or “Disapproval”. Provisional approval will only be granted for those applications that have 1) met all essential elements other than confirming the program speakers or final lecture titles and 2) involve recurring workshops that have been previously endorsed by the IASLC in each of the three preceding years. A final agenda for the provisionally approved program will still be required prior to receipt of full approval status. This final agenda must be submitted for Education Committee chair review at least 6 weeks before the date of the educational activity. Provisional approval allows the applicant use of the IASLC logo in its promotional and meeting materials. Failure to receive full approval may jeopardize current and future IASLC endorsement of the recurring workshop. Applications that are disapproved can be appealed or resubmitted; however, a consultation with the Education Committee is strongly recommended prior to resubmission. This will allow the applicant to incorporate recommended changes into the program that meet minimum criteria for review.
