The 9th COMPASS Programmatic Conference was held at the Institute of Plasma Physics
The conference is traditionally combined with the meeting of the
International Board of Advisors (IBA).
The International Board of Advisors was estabilished in 1999 to help with the formulation of the
scientific programme, and to assess the scientific achievements of the
The Board meets once per year in Prague. Recently, it turned out practical to align the
meeting with the COMPASS Programmatic Conference so that the IBA members can get a first-hand
information on the status of this Association’s flagship project. However, also all other
Association’s activities, the main results achieved during the year, and the plans for the next
period are presented. The Board then holds a discussion and comes up with conclusions and
recommendations which are minuted.
