Conference Committee - 2024 Virtual Conference

The Conference Committee organizes and manages all aspects of the yearly ARCS conferences - both virtual and in-person.  They are responsible for the intellectual content of conferences, including sessions, posters, and keynotes speakers.  Additionally they establish the conference themes, manage the calls for session proposals from the membership, and partner with other ARCS Committees (e.g. Awards, Global Connections, Meetups, Program Development, and Education) on conference content creation.
