Dear Colleagues,

IEEE Cluster is a highly successful conference series that has been ongoing for more than 20 years.  We are excited to announce two open general member positions within the steering committee.  We invite the community to submit nominations for the positions, which will start following IEEE Cluster 2022.

Nominations are due July 1st, 2022.  Decisions will be sent out by Sept 1, 2022.

More information: http://clustercomp.org/

A few notes on the nomination process:

* Nominations can be for yourself (self-nominations) or for another person.

* All nominations should contain the following information:
- The name and contact information (email) of the nominee.
- A short (500 word) description of why the nominee is a good addition to the IEEE Cluster steering committee.  Please include information on the nominee’s previous contributions to IEEE and ACM conferences.  In particular, his/her/their contributions to past IEEE Cluster conferences are highly regarded by the steering committee. Previous participation may include attendance, publications, or volunteer positions (e.g., PC member, chair position).  Participation in other steering committees is also valued.
- A short (500 word) biographical sketch of the nominee.

* Nominations can be emailed (as an MS Word, PDF or text file, or just inline in an email) to the steering committee chair, Michela Taufer (taufer at gmail.com), by July 1st, 2022.  Decisions will be sent out by September 1st, 2022.

A few notes on the IEEE Cluster steering committee position:

* IEEE Cluster has two types of steering committee member positions: general member and organizational member.  General members are appointed through nominations by the community and are voted on by the current steering committee members. Organizational memberships are leaders (i.e., Conference General Chairs) of recent or upcoming IEEE Cluster conferences. This email solicits nominations for general members.

* The general member position term starts immediately after the end of IEEE Cluster 2022 and will continue until the end of IEEE Cluster 2025 (3-year term).  A general member position can be renewed for an additional 3-year term at the end of the first term (again, based on a nomination and a vote).

* Newly appointed steering committee members will be invited to attend the IEEE Cluster 2022 Steering Committee meeting, although they would only become voting members at the end of IEEE Cluster 2022.  Thus, attendance at that meeting would only be for informational purposes.

* The complete bylaws for IEEE Cluster can be shared upon request.

Thank you and we look forward to your nominations.
