The RIPE Programme Committee is responsible for recruiting and selecting presentations for the RIPE Meeting Plenary sessions. As the term of two RIPE PC members end, we are looking for new members in Autumn 2023 who will be elected by the RIPE community at RIPE 87.

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

RIPE Meeting Programme Committee: Appointment, Roles and Responsibilities provides more information about the composition and roles of the RIPE PC.

Nominations for the RIPE 87 PC elections can be sent in from Tuesday, 21 November, until Tuesday, 28 November, 15:30 CET (UTC+1). Please include a recent picture and short biography with your nomination. We will announce the PC elections at the RIPE meeting opening sessions, but interested parties can already nominate themselves.

If you are nominating someone else, please ensure that the person concerned is willing to be nominated and is copied on emails sent to the PC. The PC will attempt to confirm that nomination with the nominee before proceeding.

We will close candidate nominations on Tuesday, 28 November at 15:30 CET (UTC+1) and publish the biographies on the RIPE Meeting web site.

The RIPE PC online voting system will be open from Tuesday, 28 November, 16:00 CET (UTC+1) until Thursday, 30 November, 17:00 CET (UTC+1), for community members to cast their votes. The total voting numbers may be public.
