WP15 Internal workshops, symposia and events: amending the DoW

The idea is to use this page to amend the text for the WP description in the DoW. Please edit this wiki page directly, and use the "insert" and "delete" mark-up to show changes, as illustrated:

In this work package we collect together the organisation of the internal workshops and symposia which bring together the research which partners have been actively investigating. The aim is to ensure that knowledge is spread between the members so that we avoid silos of information within the consortium. These meetings will play an important role in building out integrated conceptual view of developing, dynamic, fields of investigation.

Description of work and role of partners

In each of the areas in the research topics we plan to organise regular workshops, across silos. In order to reduce the costs of travel we will exploit virtual meetings i.e. Web conferencing and telecons for meetings up to 3 hours long. These short meetings will be held approximately every two months. Longer meetings between research work packages will also be held, many hold adjacent to the six monthly All Hands meetings.

It will be important to reach research in many parts of the partner organisations beyond those which are directly connected with this project. In very large organisations such as ESA and CERN, they may be many defenders of groups each researching in an area which has connection to digital preservation.

Where possible these workshops will be recorded so that those who cannot participate directly will have the opportunity to watch and listen to the workshops at their leisure. These recordings will also be useful for training purposes.

List of deliverables

  • D15.1 Register of workshops and attendees (M44)
  • D15.2 Collection of workshop recordings and evaluation of their possible impact on the whole community (M48)

Description of deliverables

D15.1) Register of workshops and attendees: This register will contain the names and affiliations of attendees at the workshops. What we would hope to see is that we have attendance from a growing number of APARSEN members and, most importantly, a growing variety of members of the larger organisations; this would indicate a growing penetration into those organisations. Intermediate deliveray at M26 [month 44]

D15.2) Collection of workshop recordings and evaluation of their possible impact on the whole community: The evaluation will be based on evidence such as the number of downloads from non-APARSEN organisations. Intermediate delivery at M26. [month 48]

Further revisions in response to feedback from Project Officer 12th/14th December
