The 2017 WGISUR meeting took place on 16–18 January 2017 in Ĳmuiden, the Neth-erlands. Eight participants joined the meeting, representing Belgium, Canada, Den-mark, England, Germany, the Netherlands, and Norway.The group finished its formal multi-annual term in 2016, SCICOM did not agree on the proposed terms of reference for the next period and decided to extend the group mainly to carry out two tasks: develop a way forward for WGISUR and review the Workshop to Plan an Integrated Monitoring Program in the North Sea in the 3rd quarter. Thus, no multi-annual terms of reference applied to the 2017 meeting.
