The 2018 JACoW Team Meeting was hosted by and on the premises of iThemba LABS, near Somerset West in South Africa.

A Team Meeting Working Group, coordinated by Christine Petit-Jean-Genaz , developed the TM'18 programme together with the Board of Directors. Garrett de Villiers and Naomi Haasbroek managed the local arrangements and David Button the programme.

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

Programme: The TM'18 programme covered not only electronic publication issues, but also 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.

Special Kickoff Session: Prior to the Team Meeting proper, a special kickoff session was held for all participants at the Lord Charles Hotel on the Monday from 16:00 to 18:00.
