Committee on International Scientific Affairs

The membership of the Committee on International Scientific Affairs (CISA) consists of nine persons. Six (6) members are selected by the Committee on Committees and appointed by the President-Elect to staggered three-year terms, while the Chair, Past-Chair and Chair Elect of the Forum on International Physics (FIP) serve as statutory members of CISA. The President-Elect appoints the Chair of CISA from among the members of the Committee. CISA monitors the international science scene and the balance between new APS initiatives and ongoing activities in this arena. Guided by the Purpose of the Society as stated in Article II of the APS Constitution and Bylaws, CISA encourages APS efforts to strengthen interaction among researchers and institutions in different regions of the world and to further extend worldwide access of physicists to scientific information and its exchange. To this end, CISA advises and assists the APS Director of International Scientific Affairs and the Council, and provides documentation and recommendations for action, consulting with other relevant committees as appropriate.
