Committees

The International Organizing Committee (IOC) consists of distinguished scientists and technologists from the broader IRMMW-THz community who are nominated and elected to the board to serve a term of six years. The Committee is guided by a Chair and Vice-Chair who each serve for three years and are nominated and elected by the IOC. The IOC also serve as board members for the International Society of Infrared, Millimeter and Terahertz Waves, a 501c(3) Charitable Corporation, founded in 2009. The Society is managed by a General Secretary who is elected each year by the IOC.
