Annual General Meeting 2018
of the SDL Forum Society

The Annual General Meeting 2018 of the SDL Forum Society was held during the SAM2018 conference in Copenhagen, Denmark from 16:00 to 17:52 on October 15, 2018. The meeting was held IT University of Copenhagen, Rued Langgaards Vej 7, 2300 Copenhagen S, Denmark.

The business of the meeting was as follows:

  • To approve the minutes of the previous AGM;
  • To receive and adopt the report of the Board and the statement of accounts for the year;
  • To elect the Board for the coming year;
  • To elect the auditors for the coming year;
  • To discuss the future operation of the Society;
  • To consider any proposed resolutions from the Board or members for operation of the Society in future, including (but not limited to) Society Events (see http://www.sdl-forum.org/Events/index.htm), standardisation work, member benefits and subscriptions.

The existing Board were nominated as candidates for the Board election. There were no other nominations and the Board was re-elected. The 2018-2019 Board is therefore::

  • Chairman - Reinhard Gotzhein, University of Kaiserslautern, Germany;
  • Treasurer – Jens Grabowski, University of Göttingen, Germany;
  • Secretary – Ferhat Khendek, Concordia University, Montreal, Canada.

The following issues were considered and discussed by the meeting:

  • The Society Event for 2019: it was agreed to continue co-location and collaboration with MODELS if possible and (the Board) to investigate holding a SAM2019 with MODELS 2019: alternatively if this is not practical the a stand-alone event may be held in Barcelona in 2019;
  • Name for future events: it was considered to refocus Society objectives, hold SAM annually and discontinue SDL Forum as an event title.
