The selection procedure for the 2020-2022 DMLs has started and this email is to remind you to nominate suitable candidates. The scope of the DML program is well known and has been very successful: we need excellent speakers on topics that are of interest to a broad audience. Please note that DML talk is expected to differ from a typical expert technical talk, in that it must be specifically designed for a broader audience. Moreover, it is recommended that the DMLs form a team with good geographical balance.
Please provide your nomination including the complete nomination material (please see the checklist below) by May 3, 2019.
The final speaker list will be approved during AdCom Summer meeting.
Please provide the following information/documents and return them by email to me at email@example.com.
