The RIPE Programme Committee (RIPE PC) handles recruiting and selecting presentations for the RIPE Meeting Plenary sessions. As the term of two RIPE PC members ends, we are looking for new members. The RIPE community will elect these members at RIPE 79 in Rotterdam.

There are currently two seats up for election to the RIPE PC. Please send nominations, with a biography, statement of interest and photographs, to pc [at] ripe [dot] net.

The Charter of the RIPE Programme Committee provides more information about the composition and roles of the RIPE PC.

You can now send nominations for the RIPE 79 PC elections. Call for nominations will run from Monday, 7 October until Tuesday, 15 October, 15:30 CEST. We will announce the PC elections at the RIPE Meeting opening sessions, but interested parties can nominate themselves from now.

We will close candidate nominations on Tuesday at 15:30 CEST, and publish the biographies on the RIPE Meeting web site. Candidates (or their stand-ins) can present themselves at the start of the Tuesday 16:00 CEST session.

The RIPE PC online voting system will be open from Tuesday, 15 October, 16:00 CEST until Thursday, 17 October, 17:30 CEST, for the community members to cast their votes. The total voting numbers may be public.

The official announcement of the elected RIPE PC members will be on Friday morning, 18 October, at the start of the 11:00 CEST closing plenary session.
