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 Association. The first meeting was held even before joining EURATOM in 1999; M. Tendler was elected as a chairman. In the period 2006-2010, the Board was chaired by Prof. H. Bruhns.

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.
