The Nominating Committee consists of the IPC. The Nominating Committee conducts its business by mail beginning at least six months before the next Conference, and has one meeting on the eve of the Conference.
The Nomination Committee prepares a list of candidates to fill the expiring terms on the IAB and IPC and nominates the IPC officers if terms of these are expiring. All the nominees are submitted for election to the Conference at its Business Meeting. In selecting candidates for the IAB and IPC, the Nominating Committee keeps in mind the functions of these bodies and pays due attention to achieve appropriate geographical, research field and age distributions of their membership.
Participants to the Conference are invited to make suggestions to the IPC Chair regarding new IPC and IAB candidates, who transmits them to the Nominating Committee.
