JACoW Team Meeting 2018 | 3 - 7 December | Cape Town, South Africa

The 2018 JACoW Team Meeting will be 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 this year's 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 as usual will cover 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. Attendance is therefore open not only to editors, but to all interested in the above. JACoW Team Members are encouraged to pass on this information to their colleagues on the LOC.

Pre-Team Meeting: An invitation only pre-team meeting for the JACoW Management, SPMS and Indico developers and super users, will be held on Sunday 2 December and Monday 3 December, also at the Lord Charles Hotel in Somerset West. Invitees will be invited separately.

Special Kickoff Session: Note that prior to the Team Meeting proper, there will be a special kickoff session at the Lord Charles Hotel from 16:00 to 18:00. All participants are expected to attend this session which aims to emphasise continuity throughout the JACoW Collaboration events.

Accommodation: A block of rooms will be reserved at the the NH Group Lord Charles Hotel, in Somerset West. The pre-team participants will be accommodated at the same hotel. Your Hotel reservation is URGENTLY required - see info on "Accommodation"-page.

Registration: Delegate registration is via an Indico event based at CERN, the result of the JACoW/CERN Project to bring SPMS functionality to Indico. Please refer to the registration page for more information.
