While the organising committee oversees organisation of the whole event, subcommittees will focus on specific issues. They will be defined in the beginning of the preparation process, however, their topics will include:
- Satellite events
- Congress programme coordination
- Financial support and sponsorship
- Publications editing
In addition to the local organizing committee, a scientific committee and a prize committee will perform the main organisational activities of the congress.
The scientific committee will be appointed by EMS and will be responsible for the scientific content of the congress.
The prize committee will also be appointed by EMS. The prize committee will review nominations for awards and decide on awardees. Everyone will be able to nominate a person for awards, including members of the Prize Committee and candidates themselves. Nominations will have to include all relevant information.
Specific arrangements will be developed by the EMS and the appointed prize committee.
The local organisers guarantee that they will also provide committee members with the possibility to meet in person. The meetings will be organised at the premises of the University of Primorska in Koper, Slovenia. Local organisers will organise and pay accommodation for 2 nights and provide local transportation. If the budget will allow it, local organisers will also cover the transportation costs for the prize committee.
