AAIC scientific program committee
A Scientific Program Committee (SPC) is organized for each AAIC and includes international experts in a variety of topic areas who are committed to developing the most relevant and innovative content for the conference. Specifically, the SPC determines the invited program (plenary and symposia sessions) and creates the oral, poster and featured research sessions based on the review scores for the submitted portion of the program.
The SPC conducts their work year-round, including a planning teleconference in the fall, a two-day meeting in March and a meeting at AAIC. Members serve a three-year term.
