CSDH/SCHN is seeking a program chair to lead the organization of our annual conference as part of Congress 2023 (York University, May 27th to June 2nd). Ideally, we would like to run a hybrid conference allowing members to meet in person for the first time since 2019 while also offering the chance to attend virtually.
The program chair is responsible for leading and coordinating the work of the program committee, oversees the peer-review process, and guides the acceptance process. The work is relatively light but increases as the conference approaches and becomes more significant in relationship to programming. The program chair can expect the assistance of the Vice-President (English) as well as the program committee.
Being conference chair is not only an important contribution to the community but an opportunity to have an overview of the Canadian DH landscape, including advanced and groundbreaking techniques and discoveries as well as taking the pulse of the field.
If you or someone you know is interested in this position, please contact Barbara Bordalejo (firstname.lastname@example.org) by December 5th.
