Dear Collaborators,

most of the forums in the "CBM" category are devoted to internal discussions of the various working groups and projects. Access to these forums is therefore restricted. Only members of the user group "CBM" have read as well as write access to these forums.

If you want to use the forums please:
  1. Register yourself with the forum. Click on "Register" and fill out the registration form.
  2. Send an email to stating that you you registered, so that I can add you to the "CBM" group.

When you register, please
  • Fill out the Alias field with your full name (first plus last name). This field is used in all displays, and having the correct name here helps a lot to avoid confusion in a large community. Please do not use a nickname here as suggested in the dialog.
  • Fill out the Location field with your affiliation . This field is also displayed with postings, and together with a proper name, helps to identify persons.

It is up to you to decide whether you want to be notified by email about new topics or postings. If you want a notification, you have to subscribe to a forum (to get a notification in case a new topic is opened) or to a topic (to get a notification in case a new posting is made).

If you like to have notifications it is likely that you'd like to subscribe to all topics which have created or posted to. The forum can do this automatically, in the profile under "Preferences" just set "Select Notification By Default" to yes.

In general, it is a good idea to enable in the profile under "Preferences" the option "Private Message Notification". This will cause an email notification in case a 'private message' is send to you.

If you have a problem with you personal setup, don't hestitate and send me an email ( The instructions given above are also available as a short presentation with annotated screen shots under


If you have a more general question regarding the CBM forums, feel free to post it in the "CBM communication infrastructure" forum. This forum is readable and writable to all users.
