CASPER Advisory Board

Members of the CASPER advisory board are responsible for assessing the state of the CASPER initiative and providing suggestions for the future directions of the collaboration. Typically, the board meet yearly at the annual collaboration workshop.

Feedback and suggestions from CASPER users, developers and collaborators are encouraged. Contact details for individual board members are below, or you can reach the whole board by mailing .

Anonymous feedback to the board can also be provided using this Google Form. While we gladly provide this contact mechanism for situations where anonymity may be desirable, please be aware that providing feedback in this way limits the ability of the board to follow-up on comments.
