Cast 10B is soliciting nominations for the 2016 Programming Coordinator.
The current list of CAST 10B Programming Coordinators is:
2013: Michael Baldea (UT-Austin)
2014: Tyler Soderstrom (ExxonMobil)
2015: Nael El-Farra (UC Davis)
Given the CAST 10b policy of selecting a coordinator from industry every
third year, the 2016 Programming Coordinator should be from academia.
All of the Programming Coordinators for the four CAST Areas sit on the
CAST Programming Board, which is headed by the CAST Division Programming
Coordinator (Nick Sahinidis, CMU). To make the process as inclusive as
possible, we would like to request nominations from the general CAST
membership. The new procedure for selection of the Programming Coordinator
is an open voting process.
Please note that all nominees must be willing and able to devote the time
and effort necessary to carry out the tasks required by the position. When
nominating someone, please verify their willingness to serve prior to
making the nomination. The specific duties of the CAST 10b Programming
