A summary document will be
produced and presented to
Plenary ECFA in November.
Discussion on a 3rd workshop,
possibly in 2016, has started.

Instrumentation School in Serbia
University of Novi Sad, Serbia
September 8-13, 2014
Jointly organised by CERN, the ICFA
Instrumentation Panel and ECFA
The school was initiated during a
RECFA country visit to Serbia.
60 students participated in lectures
and laboratory courses (1/3 from
Serbia, 1/3 from the Danube region,
1/3 international).
This 1 week school is a very successful
format for the promotion of detector
physics.

Election Process
Eligible for voting are representatives from the CERN member states (including Romania as
candidate for accession and Serbia as associate member state in the pre-stage to membership), and
one from CERN. Observers do not participate in the voting. The number of eligible voters is
therefore 24.
For the election itself I would like to propose the following procedure (same procedure as in 2011):
1) In order the election to be valid, there must be more than 2/3 of eligible voters participating
(i.e. 16). Proxy votes are accepted, however should not exceed 1/6 of the number of the
eligible voters (i.e. 4).
2) At every round of voting, those with the lowest number of votes are dropped, until only one
candidate is left or one has achieved more than 2/3 of the votes.
3) The last candidate must receive an endorsement by more than 2/3 of the votes participating.
4) Proxy votes can be given to the chair with an exact instruction how to follow the steps
described in 2) and 3).
I have received 4 proxy votes (Bulgaria, Germany, Italy, Serbia)

Election Process
Proposal for one amendment to the election process:
-
In the case, following a vote, the sum of dropped votes is larger than 50% of the eligible votes,
the voting will be repeated.
E.g. eligible votes 21, result 9 - 4 - 4 - 4
