CAST 10c is soliciting nominations for the 2010 Programming Coordinator.
The current list of CAST 10c Programming Coordinators is:
2007: Jose Pinto (Polytechnic U.)
2008: Dimitrios Varvarezos (Aspen Technology)
2009: Christos Maravelias (U. of Wisconsin)
Given the CAST 10c policy of selecting a coordinator from industry every
other 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 10c Programming
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 10c Programming Coordinator include:
Year One: Attend the Area Programming Meeting at the 2007 and 2008 Fall
AIChE meetings and learn the basic procedures. Help the other two 10c
coordinators as necessary with the organization and review process for
the 2008 and 2009 Fall AIChE meetings.
Year Two: Develop the Area 10c program for the 2010 Fall AIChE meeting.
This task is performed at the Area 10c Programming Meeting at the 2009
Fall AIChE meeting.  Ensure that Calls for Papers are submitted to the
Division Programming Coordinator on time for inclusion in the CAST
Newsletter. Ensure that the Division Programming Coordinator has all the
session titles and chairmen information required for the AIChE
programming retreat. Manage the nomination and appointment process for
the 2011 Programming Coordinator.
Year Three: Coordinate the central review of abstracts for the 2010 Fall
AIChE meeting. Develop the final program with the assistance of the
other Cast 10c programming chairs and session chairmen. Report to the
CAST 10c 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 meeting. Monitor attendance
and note the absence of speakers at the sessions.
Please submit nominations to me by email before September 1, 2007. If
you have any questions, please do not hesitate to contact me.
