The Local Organising Committee

The ITC Local Organising Committee (LOC) for the 2021 ITC Colloquium has been operational since July 2020. All its members are current members of the ITC Council.

Prof. Dragos Iliescu, University of Bucharest ITC past-president

The original LOC, which was set up when the University of Luxembourg planned to host the 12th ITC Conference, included the following. We thank them for their contribution to the work required to prepare the 2020 Conference. Many of them contributed to the development for over two years and continue to assist the new ITC LOC in its work as we switch to preparation for the 2021 online Colloquium.
