I have been elected to both the AIED Executive Committee and the EDM Steering Committee. These are the bodies that manage two conferences in my area and appoint the editor for the associated journals.  I also serve as a Senior Program Committee for the Intelligent Tutoring Systems Conference series. I am also served as Program Committee members at UMAP 2011-13 as well as FLAIRS. Program Committee members review papers for the conferences and the journals. In 2015 I was selected to be Co-Program Chair for AIED2015.  The program chair selected the reviewers, and ultimate is responsible to decided what is selected for the program.   I also do Journal Reviewing for toCHI, and other journal when relevant to my interest areas.
