I happened to note that there is a serious shortage of Asian, African, and South American members in the Program Committee. Since it is still under construction, I thought it might be of value to bring forward this reflection. The contribution to almost all fields, in particular, in East Asia has grown rapidly and is likely to continue to do so, so I am afraid that important perspectives and resources for the challenge could be missed unless the Program Committee is made more representative of the world we live in. Best wishes, Torbjörn Nordling

Hi Torbjörn, you are raising a very valid point, thank you. We invite everybody to recommend outstanding researchers from these geographic regions as reviewers and we will try our best to balance the panel. Feel free to email Chloe and I directly. Thanks again!
