The Executive Committee

The executive committee is the committee that manages the conference as a whole and facilitates its execution.

The committee's two main roles are :

  • Conference Planning – defines responsibilities, guides activities of the working committees, and serves as the policy-making body for the conference. Early organization of a competent planning committee by the conference chairperson is essential for the successful conduct of a conference. It is done by determining what working committees are needed and selecting appropriate chairpersons.
  • Conference Execution – provides guidance to session governance and format as well as facilitating with the chairpersons the creation of successful conference sessions. The executive committee member solicits suggestions and contributions. He or she is able to evaluate sessions and papers critically.

The Scientific Committee

The scientific committees are responsible for reviewing the abstracts submitted. The committee members present world-class researchers in their field and are able to evaluate the abstracts on predefined criteria, including but not limited to: originality of the research, the scientific strength of the work and the consistency with the conference theme. The five scientific Committees have representation from all disciplines. The names of the scientific committee per sub-track will be announced on 15th May 2019
