When registering, please enter the parallel sessions you would like to attend. Christine will work out a schedule to allow participants to attend as many sessions as possible.

Team Meetings are organized for Team Members in line with the JACoW Terms of Reference and Boundary Conditions. Attendance at Team Meetings is a boundary condition for membership of the JACoW Collaboration, and publication of conference proceedings at the JACoW site.

The programme offered at Team Meetings however not only covers electronic publication issues, but it also addresses the wider field of conference organisation (SPMS, InDiCo, delegate and exhibitor registration, organisation of OC/SPC meetings, etc.) as well as the very complex IT issues. Attendance is therefore open not only to editors, but to all interested in the above. JACoW Team Members should pass on this information to their colleagues on the LOC.
