Congress Committee

The Congress Committee oversees the preparation and organizing of the EAA Annual Congresses. The committee serves as the primary contact point for prospective conference hosts, and its key role is to encourage and screen offers to host future EAA conferences. During the congress preparation, the committee oversees and provides guidance to the local EAA congress organisers by following their compliance with the EAA conference guidelines and by overseeing the budget and budget revisions of the local host. The Congress Committee is responsible for drafting the EAA Congress Guidelines  and reviewing them on a regular basis.
