iCIRRUS Meeting Berlin 19th May 2015

The second iCIRRUS general meeting was held at the Fraunhofer Heinrich Hertz Institute in Berlin on the 19th of May 2015. The agenda included work package (WP) meetings, Technical Steering Committee (TSC) meeting and the General Assembly (GA) meeting.

The day started with the TSC meeting discussing progress in each of the WPs and progress of the appointment of advisory board members and negotiations with Interdigital to join the consortium.

The importance of each partners’ contribution to the project was emphasised and WP leaders were encouraged to monitor this closely.

Individual WPs were discussed thereafter, with parallel sessions for WP3 and WP4. Presentations from these meetings are available on the iCIRRUS password protected SharePoint site. Members of WP3 and WP4 were unhappy that their sessions were run in parallel because some of them would have liked to attend both. It was therefore decided that there should be no parallel sessions in future as most of the WPs are interconnected in some way. In order to provide sufficient time for this future meetings should be run over two days.

The formal part of the meeting concluded with the GA meeting, reminding partners of due dates of deliverables close to the submission dates and the locations and dates of the next face-to-face meetings were discussed. Matters such as the membership of the iCIRRUS mailing list and SharePoint were mentioned to ensure that these lists are up-to-date. Members were reminded to register for SharePoint as documents are not only uploaded for reference but also for editing.

The day concluded with dinner at one of the restaurants at Hackesche Markt, a central meeting place and favourite starting point for a night out in Berlin.
