Program Committee Mission
The program committee helps with the format of the meeting, for example changing ratios of posters to oral presentations depending on the venue and the number of submissions. We select and invite the plenary speakers, we review the submissions where there is a high score to select distinguished and extended papers. Where the reviewers have given a low score or there is a discrepancy we review the abstracts and make decisions on those that will be accepted. Overall we are responsible for the academic side of the program and so make decisions on many aspects of the meeting.
