DLF Forum Planning Committee

The DLF Forum Planning Committee is composed of three subcommittees: Program, Community, and Reviewers. These volunteers put in many hours of work to ensure the conference program is rigorously peer-reviewed and well-balanced, and that ample social and wellness activities are offered to complement the sessions.

DLF’s Committee for Equity and Inclusion, which arose from the Forum’s Inclusivity Committee several years ago, is integral to helping us make our event as accessible and inclusive as possible.
