Meetings Committee     

The Meetings Committee is responsible for planning, executing and evaluating program content of all Meetings in which the Society participates. This includes technical and non-technical or broader impact content, tutorials, workshops, electronic content delivery, experiments in new meetings, as well as co-sponsored, co-located or other partnered programming. It evaluates proposed MRS endorsements for external technical meetings; seeks opportunities to coordinate efforts across the Society and liases with the MRS Publications Committee to coordinate topical content between mediums when possible.
