Conference Council

It is the responsibility of the Conference Council to regularly review the Society's meetings portfolio with the aim of identifying and resolving current issues and challenges as well as to make suggestions for new meetings when appropriate. The Conference Council is also responsible for reviewing and approving requests for technical co-sponsorship, Chairs and Representatives for selected conferences, and location and venue selections for the IEEE Photonics Conference.

The Vice President of Conferences chairs the Council and appoints members as necessary. The voting membership of the Council includes the Chair, Vice President Technical Affairs, Chair of the Topical Meeting, and three members appointed by the Vice President (Conferences) selected to reflect the breadth of technical interests of the Society.
