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)
