Taking into account the continuous decrease of contributions over the last years, a reshaping
of the format of the newsletter is proposed. The core idea is to move towards an e-zine format,
allowing much more freedom about the content of individual articles (targeting either operations, or
R&D activities, nationally or transversally to the Programme).
The "operations" and "R&D" sections, which proved to be fairly difficult to fill in, in recent
past, would be replaced by a single section of "operational and R&D activities in the Programme".
This Section would contain any of the above-mentioned contributions, based on a more "on-offer"
logic (as opposed to an "on-demand" approach as in the past).
Teams willing to promote their work will therefore be able to continue to contribute with
status notes about the evolution of their applications and/or short scientific notes - which sometimes
could be understood as preparatory notes to a peer-reviewed paper.
The status about cycles and Arpège operations, as well as the Foreword text, would remain,
The Sections about "papers" and "PHD studies" will remain; the "papers" section will
specifically focus on advertising accepted papers; the "PHD" section will remain focused on ongoing
PHD work at any partner institute.
The Support Team will continue to regularly advertise partners to contribute to the ALADIN
e-zine. However, each release will be closed at a given date, and its content at that date will
constitute the corresponding version
