Wishing you a joyous New Year from DNS-OARC! We hope you had a delightful holiday, and we eagerly anticipate collaborating with you in the coming year.

We’d like to introduce you to the Programme Committee (PC) for 2024 as well as update you on OARC 42.

The 2024 OARC PC

The OARC Programme Committee is appointed by the Board on a calendar
year basis, and we are pleased to confirm the composition of the PC for 2024.

We received an unusually large and strong selection of candidates this year, some 15 in total. This degree of enthusiasm and commitment to upholding content quality at OARC workshops is very gratifying, thank you to everyone that applied.

To make the most of this opportunity and ensure the greatest diversity in the PC, the Board decided for 2024 to extend the size of the PC to 9 members.

There are 4 outgoing PC Members, and 4 continuing to serve, so the Board has appointed 5 new members.

The 2024 OARC PC, from top left: PC Chair Petr Špaček (ISC), Co-Chair Hazel Smith (Amazon), Ben Schwartz (Meta), Cathy Almond (ISC), John Todd (Quad9), Puneet Sood (Google), Raffaele Sommese (UTwente), Suzanne Woolf (PIR), Tijay Chung (TChung)

Ray Bellis will continue as Board liaison to the PC.
