Follow-up from previous meeting, review of actions and master schedule

There was a further discussion of the APARSEN panel session at the forthcoming iPRES conference in Lisbon. René has discussed the approach with David. The idea is to present some exemplary services for the future and discuss with the audience whether they are sensible and valid. Training (presented by Sharon) and audit/certification (Barbara Sierman) are confirmed. From D21.1 it should be possible to select some services under the heading "infrastructure services". Simon will consider whether he could present these services and open up a discussion.

Maurizio urged that we should try to set up some preliminary cooperation or agreements with other projects before the conference, for example about definition of services.

There is a wiki page for the conference at AparsenIpres2013. Maurizio encouraged APARSEN people who are interested to register for the workshop on PIDs on the afternoon of 5 September.

A wiki page for the next All Hands Meeting has been created at APANAllHands201312. Simon will confirm by email when the start date of the meeting has been chosen (very probably Tuesday 3 December).

Management update

Simon reported that he has nearly finalised the reply to the EC's queries on the Form Cs for the scond year, and thanked those who had provided clarifications.

An email has been received from Manuela Speiser about the next review. She has asked us to propose dates in late Feb/early March 2014.
