The function of the Program Committee is to:
1) Make the final selections and scheduling of all the scientific activities, based on recommendations that come from the Scientific Boards;
2) Determine the type and balance of programs and activities to be offered at IFM, i.e. Research workshops, conferences, opportunities for research teams, programs for education, industrial workshops, research grants, and fonts (donations) etc.
