DC-Review Schedule: Projects and Reviewers

We scheduled about 1.5 hours for reviewing each project. Jakub informed us that there will be 4 project officers (and 2 reviewers per project), so that we were able to schedule 4 reviews in parallel.

The other consideration was to provide on the first day sufficient time for everybody, in particular the project officers and reviewers, to visit the exhibition stands of the projects in order to inform themselves about the projects - beyond the deliverables sent before. There are no parallel activities during this time.

Workshops/ Special Interest Groups

WS1: Issues regarding hardware and software architecture of artifacts

This is a preparation meeting for an approved WP-0-Atelier on "Artifacts and applications: can we reach compatible (although diverse) solutions on technical and architectural solutions?", scheduled for November 2001.
There are two purposes of this workshop:

  • to prepare the atelier

  • to provide a starting point for a SIG on artifact architecture

Projects involved: E-GADGETS, SMART-ITS, ORESTEIA, 2WEAR.
Contact person: Achilles D. Kameas, Computer Technology Institute - Research Unit 3 Patras, Greece. http://www.cti.gr, e-mail: Achilles.Kameas@cti.gr, Fon: +30-61-225.073 ext. 564

WS2: How to interact with disappearing computers in hybrid worlds?

This is preparation meeting for an approved WP-0-Atelier with the same name scheduled for early December 2001. It could be the start event for a SIG on these issues within the DC initiative/ network.
Projects involved: AMBIENT AGORAS, E-GADGETS, SHAPE, WORKSPACE, SMART-ITS.

Contact person: Norbert Streitz, Fraunhofer IPSI, Darmstadt, Germany. http://www.ipsi.fraunhofer.de/ambiente, e-mail: streitz@ipsi.fraunhofer.de Fon: ++49(0)6151-869-919

WS3: From sensors to context

The aim of this workshop is to give people hands-on experience with the use of sensor boards to gather context. In particular, we will discuss different types of sensors, requirements for the use of sensors and perception algorithms, as well as challenges and pitfalls for getting context from sensor data. Methods to develop systems with sensor-based context-awareness are also beeing looked at.
Projects involved: SMART-ITS. Open to all people who are interested.

Contact person: Albrecht Schmidt, Lancaster University, http://www.comp.lancs.ac.uk/~albrecht/, e-mail: albrecht@comp.lancs.ac.uk

SIG: Privacy isssues

The purpose of this meeting is the preparation of a WP-0 activity (Atelier/ workshop) to be submitted for funding. Motivation: Parts of the DC approach raise some fear among users because of the increased possibilities of being observed and of loosing control over private information, due to hidden functionality based on embedded invisible devices.
