Subject: FW: participating in programme committee for WSSF in 2013

Dear Dr Kellerman,
First let me introduce myself – I have the great pleasure and honour of being the Chair of the Scientific Programme Committee for the World Social Science Forum, to be held in Montréal on 13-15 October 2013. The theme of the Forum is ‘Social Transformations and the Digital Age’. Please find attached the agreed text of the announcement of the call, which also provides more details of the content, plus the formalities which gives an indication of the time frame. The Forum is convened by the International Social Science Council, and hosted in Canada by a consortium led by the Montréal Secretariat of the International Political Science Association (IPSA) and the Social Sciences and Humanities Research Council of Canada (SSHRC).
You were nominated by the International Geographical Union to be part of the Programme Committee. I am writing to you now to confirm whether you are indeed willing to be a member of the committee. This would involve actively encouraging people to submit proposals not only from your country but also from your field of interest and research, reviewing the proposals in February next year, and assisting in the composition of the panels and programme as a whole.
Please let me know by 20 October - so that we can include names of committee members on future publicity for the Forum.
I look forward to hearing from you.

Yours sincerely,
Sally Wyatt
