Program Committees

Program committees review the research that has been submitted to a conference and decide which contributions will be accepted. This is done by persons that, in the eye of the organizers, are able to appropriately judge the relevance and quality of the submissions. By taking part in program committees, we are able to actively shape the research of our field.
