  • Information officer: Maria Derkova
  • Administration and PM assistance: Patricia Pottier

n.b. 1 : The partition between CSSI (with the extra coordination of a Chairperson) and Support Team is sometimes rather arbitrary. The idea used below for "border cases" is that the chain of responsibility cannot loop twice and that hence structural (already existing for most of them) coordination responsibilities should not be formally subject to one more level of coordination.
Concerning its further evolution, the CSSI+ST composition is meant to be discussed at each ALADIN Workshop.

n.b. 2 : The role of the CSSI Chairperson is not hierarchical but of coordination, information exchange and representation, in agreement with the PM.

n.b. 3 : One untold rule in filling the full CSSI Members and Support Team position was to avoid potential ambiguities or conflicting responsibilities. Hence no PAC Members nor LACE Working Group Leaders (or equivalent) came in line for the above positions.
