Technical Committees

A critical part of shaping the technical program and overall direction of ILASS-Americas is the technical committees. The technical committees meet at each annual meeting with the goals of (1) identifying appropriate and timely technical session topics and speakers, (2) identifying suitable invited speakers for upcoming meetings, and (3) identifying relevant panel session topics (and speakers) to open the technical meeting on the first evening. The technical committees also undertake initiatives such as collection and posting of relevant reference material on the website, development of position documents, and creation of topical papers. These committees are open to any ILASS-Americas member with interest in the committee topic. If you are interested in participating, please contact the committee chair or plan to join the discussion at the upcoming annual meeting.
