DUNE Technical Board meetings are the primary forum for generating recommendations for decisions on issues related to detector design, construction, installation, and commissioning.

Eric James, Fermilab, chair

The Institutional Board is responsible for establishing governance rules of the DUNE collaboration and regulating the governance related issues. The responsibilities of the IB include but are not limited to: admission of new collaborating institutions and members; oversight of Co-Spokesperson election process; election of at -large members of the Executive Committee; approval of common funds assessments; establishment and governance of detector operations shifts; and establishment of procedure for publication of scientific results and authorship rules. IB can request presentations on and discussion of specific issues relating to the collaboration or the experiment. The results of such discussions may be recorded and passed to the Co -Spokespersons as formal advice. (from “Governance of the DUNE Collaboration”, v3, Article 3, DUNE Doc 1)

The primary functions of the Speakers Committee (SC) are to ensure that the DUNE Collaboration is well represented at international conferences and to manage the assignment of DUNE speakers for all presentations (talks, posters) given on behalf of the DUNE Collaboration at international conferences and workshops. It provides a single point of contact for conference and workshop organizers.

Contact: Please contact the DUNE Speakers Committee at dune-sc @ to request a talk or poster from a member of the DUNE Collaboration, or to forward such a request if you receive one.
