Oh, sorry Francesco, my mistake (to have forgotten the initial email, 
now attached)! This is why I simply referred to the web site...

Looking at the member list in the attached email + Ricardo Serafin @ TSB 
+ Juan Carlos Naranjo Martinez & Laura Belenguer Querol @ ITACA + Marco 
Eichelberg @ OFFIS, there are 27 people from 13 orgs.

I would suggest to have only one representative from each organization, 
MAYBE just with exception for CNR-ISTI, in order to have a size that 
reaches more easily a majority (assuming 2/3) when meeting and telcos 
are organized. This way, the upper-limit for the size of the board will 
be 14, depending on if all orgs do want to be present in the board. The 
following numbers should help to have an imagination of what it means 
for our meetings and telcos:

   size        min. # of members necessary for meetings
   ----        ----------------------------------------
    10                          7
    11-12                       8
    13                          9
    14                          10

But, I suggest that each official board member from each org can 
nominate just a second person as possible proxy to increase the chance 
that all orgs are presented when meetings and telcos are organized.
