Oh, sorry Francesco, my mistake (to have forgotten the initial email, now attached)! This is why I simply referred to the web site...

Looking at the member list in the attached email + Ricardo Serafin @ TSB + Juan Carlos Naranjo Martinez & Laura Belenguer Querol @ ITACA + Marco Eichelberg @ OFFIS, there are 27 people from 13 orgs.

I would suggest to have only one representative from each organization, MAYBE just with exception for CNR-ISTI, in order to have a size that reaches more easily a majority (assuming 2/3) when meeting and telcos are organized. This way, the upper-limit for the size of the board will be 14, depending on if all orgs do want to be present in the board. The following numbers should help to have an imagination of what it means for our meetings and telcos:

  size        min. # of members necessary for meetings
  ----        ----------------------------------------
   10                          7
   11-12                       8
   13                          9
   14                          10

But, I suggest that each official board member from each org can nominate just a second person as possible proxy to increase the chance that all orgs are presented when meetings and telcos are organized.

Dear Said,

yes, but personally I would not limit the size of governing board, being
temporary, to 10 people.
The four organizations cited in the website are willing to spend some
resources for incubating AALOA, but we haven't to limit the
participation to them.

In general in this mailing list we have individuals that don't represent
formally organizations, I'm thinking to Francois Letellier or to Thomas
Karopka to name a few. But I think their point of views can enrich the
governing board to take the right decisions.

Furthermore, I think that people belonging to the governing board will
have binding vote, but I would get the opinion of all the AALOA

Hi everybody,

from Fh-IGD, Reiner & me would like to join the temporary governing

Just to make sure: taking the list under
http://www.aaloa.org/team/role_of_promoters (CNR-ISTI, Fh-IGD, ITACA,
and SINTEF) and the newest announcement that Marco Eichelberg from
OFFIS has also joined this list (welcome on board, Marco!), with the
suggestion by Francesco, there will be at most 10 people as members of
the temporary governing board. Is that right?

Hello to everybody,

an important issue we discussed in Lisbon was about the appointment of a
temporary governing board.
I hope all of you are now returned and relaxed from their summer
vacation to proceed with the board nomination.
I would like to report in the slides presenting AALOA initiative at AAL
Forum the names of the people composing the temporary governing board.

I have not got a specific procedure in mind. Maybe we could consider to
include not more than 2 people from the same organization.
Then we should only propose our candidature.

WDYT? any other hint?

Dear Colleague,

You have been subscribed to the *public* mailing list of the AALOA promoters.

June 29th 2010 during the Lisbon workshop (http://aal-ws.fraunhofer.pt/eu-policy-ws-program/)
The following people:
Jesus Bermejo, Juan Pablo Lazaro, Francesco Potortì, Sergio Guillen, Antonio Kung, Francois Letellier, Saied Tazari, Marius Mikalsen and me (Francesco Furfari) discussed about the organization of AALOA and the first actions to do for defining a roadmap for AALOA.
In brief we decided:
1) To activate the mailing list "promoters" and "supporters" of AALOA as *public* mailing lists 2) To organize a temporary governing board in order to accept project proposals 3) To prepare a "communication" plan of AALOA to generate and to keep live the interest on AALOA.

A part CNR the people currently subscribed to this mailing list are:
