PS2016 Programme & Concept
The core program of the Projects Seminar is divided into 2 days; see the program below.
- Day 1 (Thursday, April 28): Per Topic
- Parallel Sessions with topic-specific presentations, discussions and preparation of the plenary presentation
- Plenary Demo & Poster Session
- Day 2 (Friday, April 29): Cross Topics
- Plenary Sessions with one joint presentation per topic
This year's CHIST-ERA Projects Seminar covers all the topics of the ongoing CHIST-ERA projects supported since the Call 2011.
|From Data to New Knowledge||Call 2011|
|Green ICT, towards Zero-Power ICT|
|Intelligent User Interfaces||Call 2012|
|Context- and Content-Adaptive Communication Networks|
|Adaptive Machines in Complex Environments||Call 2013|
|Heterogeneous Distributed Computing|
|Resilient Trustworthy Cyber-Physical systems||Call 2014|
|Human Language Understanding: Grounding Language Learning|
The parallel sessions are organized by topics or groups of topics to foster exchange of ideas and collaborations among CHIST-ERA projects in the same topic. The final goal is to compile a joint presentation for the Plenary Session.
- Parallel Session I: Presentation of each project in the group; see detailed instructions for presentations in Parallel Session I below.
- Parallel Session II: Following Session I and the Demo & Poster Session, delegates discuss about past and future challenges, future needs, possible synergies, roadmaps, etc., in their topic.
- Parallel Session III: Preparation of the joint plenary presentation summarizing the outcome of Sessions I & II.
The delegates will be guided through the parallel sessions by representatives of the funding organizations.
Plenary Demo & Poster Session
After the formal project presentations in Parallel Session I, there will be an interactive demo & poster session. This is an opportunity for delegates to explain or discover ongoing CHIST-ERA projects from a more practical point of view. Further detailed instructions are provided below.
There will be one joint presentation per topic, prepared during Parallel Session III, about the big picture of the major achievements and upcoming challenges in each topic; see the detailed instructions for presentations in the Plenary Session below.
Instructions for presentations in Parallel Session I
The contents of the presentations of each project (about 15 min), to be prepared in advance, include
- Scientific background
- Key challenges and potential impact of the project
- Presentation of each partner of the consortium with their specificity and added value
- Main scientific results, dissemination and other output
Instructions for presenters of a demo or a poster
Delegates are encouraged to prepare an interactive demo in relation with their project. The demos will be presented in one room and in parallel during the Plenary Demo & Poster Session; see the program. Those who would like to present a demo are kindly requested to inform the seminar organizers via the registration form. Power supply and desks will be available, but delegates need to bring their own hardware (laptops, data storage, etc.). Please contact the seminar organizers if you have any further questions or needs. The projects which are not ready to present a demo can bring a poster instead, which will be displayed in the room where the demo session takes place. Posters accompanying demos are welcome as well.
Instructions for presentations in the Plenary Session
There will be one joint presentation for each topic (up to 20 min), prepared during Parallel Session III. The contents shall cover
- a short introduction into the topic or the projects
- the big picture of the major achievements and output
- upcoming challenges and needs
- a possible roadmap
Delegates are encouraged to prepare or think about possible contents for the joint plenary presentation in advance.
A few meeting rooms equipped with a beamer are available for project consortium meetings prior to or after the seminar. If you wish to organize such a meeting, please contact or inform the seminar organizers via the registration form.
