The MIP Workshop series is organized by volunteer members of the research community. The Workshop has no affiliation with any society or corporation and the funds raised are entirely devoted to the workshop's organization.
- The organizing committee consists of five members, with one member being from outside North America.
- All but one member of the organizing committee changes each year. The new committee is selected by the outgoing organizing committee. One member serves two consecutive years for the purpose of maintaining continuity.
- The organizing committee may seek the help of a local organizing committee as appropriate.
