Science & Technical Councils
The Science and Technical Councils coordinate the activities of the Analysis and Technical Working Groups respectively.
Working group pages are under their Council; the simulation and forecasting logbook is common to all working groups.
- Science Council
- Technical Council
- Expected Survey Performance for Science Forecasting
- Simulation and Forecasting Logbook
- Requirements Flowdown
- Risk Management
- Value Management/Alternative Analysis and Selection
We have two ombudspeople - currently Renée Hložek and Greg Tucker - who can provide informal, confidential, nonjudgmental, impartial, and independent advice, and can arrange mediation for CMB-S4 members for the purposes of dispute resolution. They can be contacted at ombudspeople at cmb-s4 dot org.
To apply for membership please submit a membership application form.
The project proposal process is details in section 9.3 of the bylaws. Any Collaboration member may propose a Collaboration research project to an appropriate Analysis Working Group or Technical Working Group, as work that is intended to result in a journal publication after a fixed term, or a small set of related publications.
The current latex template for project submission is available here.
Working group mailing lists are open to any member of the collaboration.
Each administrative body also has its own mailing list. These are primarily for internal communication between the body's members, but any member of the collaboration can also post to the list to address the full body. They are all of the form xyz at cmb-s4 dot org where xyz is the acronym of the body's name as given above (for example, et for the Executive Team or evc for the Election & Voting Commission).
If you have any problems with the mailing lists please contact the spokespeople.
Calendar & Telecon Lines
Our google calendar is used to advertise meetings and conference calls, and to reserve one of the two CMB-S4 uberconference lines - cmbs4a (+1-866-578-4799 or +1-480-999-2448) and cmbs4b (+1-866-554-6782 or +1-301-264-6489). Please first check the line you want to use is available, and then include it in your calendar entry.
Contact Zeesh Ahmed for permission to add events to the calendar.
Note that, as embedded here, the calendar displays all events in Pacific time.
