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
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
Workshops/ Special Interest Groups
WS1: Issues regarding hardware and software architecture of
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:

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.

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
Projects involved: SMART-ITS. Open to all people who are

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.
