Cast 10B is soliciting nominations for the 2015 Programming Coordinator.
The current list of CAST 10B Programming Coordinators is:

2012: Panagiotis D. Christofides (UCLA)
2013: Michael Baldea (UT-Austin)
2014: Tyler Soderstrom (ExxonMobil)

Given the CAST 10b policy of selecting a coordinator from industry every third year, the 2015 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 (Wayne Bequette, RPI). To make the process as inclusive as possible, we would like to request nominations from the general CAST membership. The current procedure for selection of the Programming Coordinator is election by the currently active 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. The specific duties of the CAST 10b Programming Coordinator include:

Year One: Attend the Area Programming Meeting at the 2013 Fall AIChE meeting and learn the basic procedures. Help the other two 10b coordinators as necessary with the organization and review process for
the 2013 and 2014 Fall AIChE meetings.

Year Two: Develop the Area 10b program for the 2015 Fall AIChE meeting. This task is performed at the Area 10b Programming Meeting at the 2013 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. Organize the development of invited session proposals for the 2015 American Control Conference. Manage the nomination and appointment process for the 2016 Programming Coordinator.

Year Three: Coordinate the review process for AIChE papers submitted to the 2015 American Control Conference. Coordinate the central review of abstracts for the 2015 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 2015 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 October 15, 2012. If you have any questions, please do not hesitate to contact me.
