Organisation and Procedures

The governing body of the IUBS is the General Assembly (GA), which consists of delegates from ordinary, associate, and scientific members, as well as the officers and members of the Executive Committee. The Executive Committee acts in accordance with decisions made in the GA and between GAs.

The GA or the excecutive committee may appoint any comittee or working group that are necessary for the administrative or scientific work of IUBS. This can be scientific programme committees (see: application and prcedures for programmes) or steering committees to develop new themes, new initiatives or other activities within the IUBS. The Excecutive Committee usually defines size, charge, reporting lines and review processes for each of them.

How GA and the Officers and Executive Committee propose, decide, vote and interact is displayed in the follwoing organigrammes.
