Scientific Programme Committee
The Child in the City Foundation organizes seminars and conferences together with city officials and the members of the Scientific Program Committee. The Scientific Program Committee is primary responsible for the quality of the meetings and its presentations. They do so by initiating highly relevant topics and expert keynote speakers and by reviewing submitted abstracts. Abstracts that do not meet quality standards (see the criteria for submitted abstracts) are rejected. The members of the SPC are present during all seminars and conferences and easy accessible to all participants to discuss lectures, presentations and eventually new initiatives for future meetings. The Scientific Program Committee has an international board, presided by Lia Karsten (University of Amsterdam). Its members are rooted in different countries and have different disciplinary backgrounds.
