Luis M. Correia

2023 Member-at-Large - Europe, Middle East & Africa Region Candidate

Position Statement

I’ve been an active ComSoc member since I launched the Portugal Chapter in 2006.  Since then, I’ve served in many bodies (currently, I’m the GIMS Chair).  My experience in the various ComSoc bodies, as well as in the organising committees of conferences worldwide, together with the participation in projects and committees at the European level, has enabled me to have a good view of the different problems associated to researchers and practitioners at the global level, and also to be aware of the different ways and cultures of doing things.

If elected, I believe I’ll be in a good position to voice the concerns and problems of European colleagues (as well as others worldwide) in ComSoc, contributing to their effective solution, and to propose new approaches and directions to our society regarding the many challenges we’re facing nowadays, related to the various aspects of its activity.
