Organizing a Householder
Symposium Proposal Guidelines
Householder Committee, which consists of 10
members, including the Chair, is responsible for
reviewing proposals to organize a
Householder Symposium. All proposals should
be sent to the Chair
of the Householder Committee, who will then
distribute to the committee members. The Chair
will be responsible for convening meetings
to discuss all received proposals, and
communicating decisions to proposers. If a member of the
Householder Committee is involved with one
of the proposals,
this should be considered a conflict-of-interest, and that member will be
recused from all discussions
Proposals to organize the
2025 Householder Symposium should be emailed to Householder
Committee Chair Heike Fassbender (email@example.com) by
June 1st, 2022.

guidelines about issues to consider when

at the same time travel should not be
too complicated for participants.

This would likely include a proposal to
the U.S. National Science Foundation to
help cover travel and lodging expenses
for student and early career
participants. If the proposed symposium
is in the U.S., then it is expected that
the LOC will write and submit the NSF
proposal. If the symposium is outside
the U.S., the LOC should work with U.S.
representatives on the Householder
Committee who will be responsible for
writing and submitting the NSF proposal.
note: Proposals by professional congress and
convention bureaus will not be considered.
No contact information about local members
of our community will be provided.
