The Conference Committee is in charge of ISoP conferences, principally ACoP, and provides a detailed outline of these to the Board annually, for approval and inclusion in the budget. Once the plan is approved by the Board, the Conference Committee has responsibility for execution of the plan and approval of Sub-Committee activities. For conferences that are organized by ISoP, the Conference Committee chairperson is responsible for the creation and oversight of conference related Sub-Committees and the selection of the Sub-Committee chairs, including, but not limited to, the following:
- The Programming Sub-Committee is responsible for the solicitation, review, development, and recommendation of programming content for any ISoP sponsored conferences, and annually reviewing the Programming guidelines. Its chair in 2019 is Nahor Haddish-Berhane.
- The Abstract Review Sub-Committee is responsible for the review of contributed abstracts for any ISoP sponsored conferences, and annually reviewing the Abstract Review guidelines.
- The Social Sub-Committee is responsible for the recommendation of social and professional networking activities for ISoP sponsored conferences.
- The Workshop Sub-Committee is responsible for the solicitation, review and recommendation of workshops at any ISoP sponsored conferences and any ISoP sponsored webinars.
The Chair of the Conference Committee in 2019 is Mirjam Trame (firstname.lastname@example.org).
