Following the expression of interest of various groups from Russian
and Dubna Member State institutions and the recommendation of
the CMS management RDMS scientists will concentrate their major
efforts at four well defined projects inside CMS:
1. The Endcap Hadron Calorimeters (HF) (full responsibility) and the Very Forward Calorimeters (VF). Both activities are parts of the full Hadron Calorimetry (HCAL) CMS management has appointed I.Golutvin (JINR) as Project Manager of HF subsystem. V.Kryshkin (IHEP) was appointed as a Technical coordinator. A.Volodko (JINR) was elected as a Chairperson of RDMS Institution Board which comprises one representative from each RDMS institution participating in HCAL.
2. The first forward muon station MF1 (full responsibility).
3. The electromagnetic calorimeter (ECAL) and preshower in the collaboration with other non RDMS institutions.
4. The tracker (part of the MSGC in collaboration with other non RDMS institutions).
In addition RDMS collaboration plays an active role in two common
projects like software and Magnet participating in which is the
responsibility of the whole CMS RDMS collaboration. Several groups
are interesting in Heavy Ion physics. The sharing of responsibilities
between institutions and countries is given in Table 11.1.
