The UK e-Science AHM Foundation came into being to take long-term responsibility for the good governance of the succession of AHMs. Its mission is to ensure the good management and continuity of the UK e-Science AHM. It will do this by:

  • Organising financial support and administration of the AHMs or deciding that they should no longer continue.
  • Maintaining an outline plan of a sequence of AHMs – typically 2 or 3 years ahead – covering venues, overall meeting goals and appointment of the PC chair.
  • Monitoring progress of the preparation for each AHM.
  • Monitoring the success of each AHM on the basis of a report from the PC and administrative team after the meeting.
  • Maintaining knowledge on how to run AHMs, so that each year’s PC has the advice from previous years, and agreements with companies and organisations can be honoured each year.
  • The AHM Foundation would conduct its business predominantly by email and tele-conference. It will meet face-to-face once per year, normally at the AHM.

The membership should be:

  • Five members chosen by the e-Science Directors’ Forum. These will normally be chosen on the basis of having been actively involved in leading a previous AHM’s development, e.g. former PC or SC chairs.
  • Each Research Council will be asked to provide a member.
  • JISC will be asked to provide two members.
  • The period of office will be three years. Members may be reappointed.
  • In the first two years approximately one third of the members will be selected by pulling names out of a hat and their positions will be subject to re-election, so that the terminations of membership are uniformly staggered.

The person leading the administrative support for the AHMs will be an ex officio member.

The Foundation will be supported and managed by an honorary executive officer. This will initially be Dr Anna Kenway, Deputy Director of the e-Science Institute. The executive officer would also be an ex officio member.
