Final Reminder

CAST 10b is soliciting nominations for the 2010 Programming Coordinator.
The current list of CAST 10b Programming Coordinators is:

2007: Robert Young (ExxonMobil)
2008: Mayuresh V. Kothare (Lehigh U.)
2009: Masoud Soroush (Drexel U.)

Given the CAST 10b policy of selecting a coordinator from industry every 
third year, the 2010 Programming
Coordinator  will be selected from industry.

To make the process as  inclusive as possible, we would like to request 
nominations from the general
CAST  membership.  According to the current selection procedure, the 
Programming Coordinator is
selected from the nominees  by  the current and recent past CAST 10b 
Programming Coordinators.

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. All of the Programming Coordinators for 
the four CAST Areas sit on the CAST
Programming Board, which  is headed by the CAST Division Programming 
Chair (Larry Biegler, Carnegie Mellon
University). The specific duties of  the CAST 10b Programming 
Coordinator include:

Year One: Attend the Area Programming Meeting at the 2007 and 2008 Fall 
AIChE meetings and

inclusion in the CAST Newsletter.
Ensure that the Division Programming  Coordinator has all the session

Programming Coordinator.

Year Three: Coordinate the review process for AIChE papers submitted to 
the 2010 American Control Conference.
Coordinate the central review of abstracts for the 2010 Fall AIChE 
meeting. Develop the final program with the
assistance  of the other Cast 10b programming chairs and session 
chairmen. Report to the CAST 10b membership
on the status of  Area programming at the 2010 Fall Programming Meeting. 
Request that all speakers at AIChE meetings
submit a  Presentation Record to the AIChE at least one month before the

of speakers at the sessions.
