Conference Committee

The Conference Committee has the overall responsibility for all conference activities in which SCS has direct management responsibilities, whether these are run exclusively by SCS or in co operation with other societies. Their mandate is to review and approve key conference organizers, conference sites, budgets, contractual commitments, and the general structure of program activities.

One of their major responsibilities is the establishment of a multi user conference plan which will provide geographic and program diversity while minimizing potential conflict between other conferences and activities. The Conference Committee also maps long range strategies to provide SCS with an evolving conference schedule which will advance the state of the art in simulation and related technology.

Conference concepts and directions are critically evaluated at the conclusion of each individual conference.
