ExCo Initiative on Technical Committee Activities
In order to encourage the development and offering of summer schools, the IAPR ExCo will commit support and resources to this effort. The ExCo believes that summer schools provide a unique opportunity to connect students and junior researchers with senior scientists in a fruitful way, consistent with the mission of IAPR.
Because of their focused nature, summer schools are best handled as Technical Committee (TC) activities. Summer school organizers applying to the ExCo for support must work through at least one TC as they develop and present the proposal. When the subject matter straddles domains, more than one TC may be involved. In fact, the ExCo encourages these sorts of inter-TC collaborations.
