VEE Steering Committee Composition

The VEE steering committee (SC) comprises past general and program chairs and a USENIX representative, assuming USENIX continues to co-sponsor the event. After each instance of VEE, membership on the steering committee will be updated as follows:


The general and program chair of the most recent VEE conference will be invited to join the SC, if they are not already members.


When the conference has been held for a number of years, members will be removed from the committee based on the date of the last time they were general chair (GC) or program chair of VEE.

As long as USENIX remains a sponsor of VEE, there will remain a USENIX representative on the SC. This is an exception to the rules above for rotating people off the committee.

The GC in year X becomes the SC Chair in year X+2. In other words, the GC serves one year, participates in the SC the next year, and then chairs it the third year.

When the above rule for SC Chair selection cannot be followed for some reason, the SC Chair is chosen by election among the current SC. The previous GC (or some other well-defined SC member) serves as interim SC Chair and leads the election.
