4th Open Discovery Space project meeting in Evry

The 4th Open Discovery Space project (ODS) meeting was held in Evry, France last week, from Wednesday to Friday. IE members, Salvador and Enayat, participated in the meeting and were mostly involved in the technical parts of the ODS project.

During Wednesday and Thursday Salvador and Enayat met OUNL Soude, Hendrik and Marlies to discuss common pending issues and tasks to finalize D.8.4. Planning is that all will integrate the discussed improvements and update their contributions this week.

Enayat also presented his work on a social visualization tool for the ODS recommendation system during the second day, discussing about the work done in WP7 within the second harvesting cycle by both UAH and GRnet teams.

From a more general perspective, the partners also exchanged ideas and plans for the project in the forthcoming year, specifically project positioning, training academies and dissemination.

Below, some pictures taken during these 3 days in Evry.

Organic.Lingua 4th project meeting in Paris

This week, members of the OrganicLingua consortium meet in Paris to attend the different working sessions. We are meeting in the INRA facilities in the 7th arrondissement, a nice neighbourhood of the city, very quiet and located very close to the Eiffel tower.


Tonight we had the social event in a nice restaurant called Leo le Lion (?). It was a nice opportunity to relax after an exhausting 9 hours working session (from 9:30 to 19:00 almost non-stop, only 1 hour lunch break). Below, a picture of consortium members attending the social dinner.


IE members Leonardo, Giannis and Salvador are these days in the city of light planning the soon to come pilot trials, working on the ontology evolution as well as in the portal reengineering and over all, coordinating all project tasks from a management perspective.
