CAIM meeting October 6. 2006
Nordbotten, Dag Elgesem, Lars-Jacob Hove (IFIM, UiB),
In the first part of the meeting the participants presented current activities and interests related to the CAIM project.
The presentations will be available at the CAIM web site http://caim.uib.no/.
Organization of the project was the topic for the second part of the meeting.
Several topics were discussed:
Contact between the project partners/participants
o We decided on having regular meetings – one meeting each semester for the whole project period.
o It was suggested that each meeting should focus on a specific topic, and that the participants should complete an “assignment”/investigation prior to the meeting.
the project will have local groups at Tromsø,
o CAIM web site
o The CAIM web site is at the moment administrated and hosted at UiB.
o The web site is an important information and publication port for the project.
discussed using a Wiki for CAIM internal information.
The discussions covered different topics
o We must plan for/be aware that results in the project may represent a contribution in different areas.
o From one theme we may produce papers in different directions, for instance applied in medical informatics, on archaeological images, in information science, computer science,….
o Rules for publishing:
§ Should we only inform everyone about papers in progress or should the project leader (or a board) approve before a paper is published?
§ Should the project leader (or a board) have the authority to postpone a publication?
§ An informal approach, where participants are informed about upcoming papers, was suggested.
o Patents may be a result from the CAIM project.
suggested adding some agreement regarding patenting in the consortium
(A draft version of a consortium agreement where distributed to the partners before the meeting.)
o PhD positions
o We will announce 3 PhD positions, one in each of the universities; UiB, NTNU and UiTø.
o Hiring of a PhD position will be a local process at each university.
o We discussed having a joint announcement on the Internet.
discussed how specific the announcement should be with respect to the research
focus for the PhD students.
It was commented that if the topic is very specific, there may be few applicants.
The announcement should specify that the PhD position must do research within the CAIM project.
o We had a short discussion on how the funding should be divided between the partners.
o Telenor’s part of the funding is in the application denoted “Purchase of R&D services”.
rest of the funding will be divided between the 3 Norwegian universities.
Some part of the funding can divided in 3.
o The next meeting
be held in
o Topic for the next meeting: “Context”
o Assignment: Identify scenarios and context characteristics
of the goals for the next meeting will be to identify common context
characteristics, and a core context set.
o There where some discussions about choosing a specific tool for modelling scenarios. We did not decide on a common tool.
