What does the Program Committee do?
Through online discussions, the Program Committee is a think tank that determines the most important themes and trends in the field, identifies new programming opportunities, and brainstorms possible speakers. Most significantly, members are the backbone of the conference proposal evaluation process. (But don’t worry—participating in the committee will not preclude you from submitting your own proposal!)
In May, after the close of MCN’s Call for Proposals, individual proposals are assigned for evaluation to Program Committee members with relevant professional expertise on the topic. Evaluators are asked to provide feedback through a formalized process. Members are given 10-14 days to complete their evaluations. Next, the Program Co-Chairs assemble the conference schedule primarily based on the committee’s feedback.
The deadline for applications is EOD Saturday, January 27th. Have a question not answered here? Email the Program Co-Chairs at email@example.com.
