IDA council

The IDA symposium series is guided by a council, which consists of the general and program chairs of previous editions of the symposium (a council member may decide to opt-out at any time).

The purpose of the council is both to ensure continuity and to innovate the symposium series when needed. As such, it is responsible for decisions that have a long-term impact on the symposium and its community. This includes, e.g., the assessment of proposals by future organizers, making the final decision on such proposals, the transfer from one conference to the next, long-term contacts with publishers, etc.

The council meets at least once a year, i.e., at the end of each IDA symposium. Throughout the year, council members are available for advice and suggestions to the organizing team of the next edition.
