Members of the steering committee will be composed of the workshop chairs and a subset of the workshop discussion chairs, and will be identified and notified once the award has been received. In selecting the members of the workshop steering committee, several issues have to be taken into account: have members from the organizing location, do not appear to be focused on members from just a few institutions, identify leaders, facilitators with a proven record of leading discussion groups and capturing the key points.

The four workshop chairs at Oregon State University are as follows:

Dr. Irem Tumer (PI), Professor and Associate Dean for Research, Oregon State University – Local organizer and co-chair of the conference
Dr. Robert Stone (Co-PI), Professor, Oregon State University – Local organizer and co-chair of the conference
Dr. Matthew Campbell (Co-PI), Professor, Oregon State University – Local organizer and co-chair of the conference
Dr. Bryony DuPont (Co-PI), Assistant Professor, Oregon State University – Local organizer and co-chair of the conference
