The OpenDose collaboration currently includes 27 research teams from 13 countries around
the world. Members of the collaboration are researchers, postdocs and PhD students with
experience in nuclear medicine dosimetry, Monte Carlo methods, high performance computing,
software development and education.
The collaboration organises annual meetings with all members to discuss actions,
new developments and to present results.
The governing body of the collaboration is the Steering Committee (SC).
Each lab participating to the OpenDose collaboration is represented in the SC.
The SC decides on all matters related to the life of the collaboration, namely
acceptance of new members, publication policy, etc...
The SC elects technical coordinators and a spokesperson.
The current spokesperson is Manuel Bardiès (email@example.com).
Current technical coordinators are:
- Damian Borys
- Ana Denis Bacelar
- Erin McKay

When joining the collaboration, all members consent to the following:
- OpenDose members work together to the common development and validation of
radiopharmaceutical dosimetric resources.
- OpenDose members agree to the free release of generated material.
- In order to ensure a long-term traceability of the work produced, OpenDose
members provide a free access to the sources and input files to members
of the collaboration.
- OpenDose members agree not to distribute any source/input file outside of
the collaboration, unless it is agreed with the author of the files.
- OpenDose publications are discussed within the SC before oublication.
