Conference Committee

The Conference Committee oversees the preparation and organizing of the EAA Annual Congresses. The committee serves as the primary contact point for prospective conference hosts, and its key role is to encourage and screen offers to host future EAA conferences. During the congress preparation, the committee oversees and provides guidance to the local EAA congress organizers by following their compliance with the EAA conference guidelines and by overseeing the budget and budget revisions of the local host. The Conference Committee is responsible for drafting the EAA congress guidelines and reviewing them on a regular basis.
