The Steering Commitee coordinates the annual Symposium on
Computational Geometry (SoCG), e.g. by appointing its PC and Video
chairs, it conducts the business meeting at SoCG, it serves as
liaisons to other organizations and conferences such as FCRC, and so
The Steering Committee is elected by the community. The call for votes is sent on the compgeom-announce mailing list by the secretary of the steering committee.
Starting in 2016, the Steering Committee is elected for a term of four years. Terms will be staggered, so, half of the committee elected in 2016 will be renewed in 2018.
