The organization of Dynamics Days - Europe
Bylaws adopted 18 Sep 1998
The European Dynamics Days Advisory Committee consists of at most
18 members. Initial roster includes the ad hoc committee as of Sept 1988
and one member appointed by the EPS Division in Statistical
and Nonlinear Physics.
The Advisory Committee can appoint new members with two thirds majority;
candidates are nominated by the members of the Committee.
Membership term for the members of the Committee is for a period of
three consecutive European Dynamics Days, ending at the end of the third
[i.e. after DD 2000 for the present members if there are DDs in 1999 and
2000]. Extensions for consecutive periods are possible by two thirds
majority vote from all members [including the ones to be extended].
The Committee appoints one of its members as secretary who is the
central agency to organize communication among Committee members and
to collect validate, and file the results of its actions.
The Advisory Committee solicits, evaluates and selects proposals for
the coming Dynamics Days meetings. After a proposal for the next
meeting is accepted, the local organizing committee runs the Dynamics
Days program until completion of the meeting, drawing upon
the Advisory Committee as well as any other members selected by the
local organizing committee as the advisory board for the meeting.
In evaluating a proposal, the Committee places special emphasis on
securing support for order of 20 or so worthy participants with no
other means of support (Eastern and Central Europe in particular).
EPS provides assistance to the organizers in publicizing the
meeting and securing the funding for it.
The Advisory Committee
has put the European Dynamics Days under the umbrella of
the EPS Division in Statistical and Nonlinear Physics
for a period of 3 years,
summers of 1999, 2000, 2001.
The title "European Dynamics Days", the final decision to appoint
organizers for the meeting for any given year and other issues related
to the continuation and existence
of European Dynamics Days remain with
the Committee, to be decided by simple majority of those answering the
secretary's opinion poll.
Giving away the title or terminating the Dynamics Days series requires
two thirds majority of all Committee members.
