Submitting Proposals

  • Who can make proposals for new taxonomy to the ICTV?
    • Any virologist can do this. You don't need to have any position in the ICTV or be a member of any ICTV Study Group.
  • By what date should I make proposals?
    • The deadline for consideration of proposals at the next Executive Committee meeting is usually about six weeks prior to the meeting. See the proposal template instructions or contact the appropriate Subcommittee Chair for more information.
  • How do I make proposals?
  • Where should I send proposals?
  • What happens after I submit proposals?
    • The Subcommittee chair will read them, and advise on any amendments. Your proposals will be discussed at the Executive Committee meeting, which takes place a few weeks after the submission deadline. The subcommittee chair will let you know the outcome.
