The Steering Committee


The Steering Committee helps and advises the Scientific Committee to make their work easier. Among other things, it examines various session proposals to determine, based on  the in-depth knowledge its members have of the ADF Meetings, whether or not they meet the expectactions and needs of Conference delegates. It also encourages and promotes new formats and training approaches, provided that their value and feasability have been demonstrated, and makes sure all the necessary resources are provided to garantee the success of these new-format sessions.
