First Research Workshop (RW1)

The first ADOPSYS Research Workshop took place at the campus of TU Delft in the Netherlands on March 27 and 28, 2014.

We started the first day with an introduction. The Early Stage Researchers (ESRs) prepared one slide to introduce themselves and their research topics. The goals and planning of the project were presented by Prof.Dr. Paul Urbach.

The WP14 manager Prof.Dr. François Goudail provided a presentation on the content of the trainings and the related evaluations within the consortium.

After the general presentations, Dr. Siegfried Wahl, Director of the Carl Zeiss AG Vision Science Lab, provided the training ‘How to collaborate in a large (research) project’. In the afternoon, Dr. Rubén Mohedano from LPI presented lectures on ‘Software and programming standards: best practices in software writing’. In the evening all participants joined an informal dinner in the centre of Delft.

On day two Dr. Stephan Malkmus from OSRAM, trained the students on ‘How to plan your project and to realize milestones and deliverables’. Prof.Dr. Pierre Chavel involved Dr. Wouter Westerveld (recently graduated PhD at TU Delft) and Dr. Ana Silva Pereira Da Luz from the TU Delft Graduate School and jointly presented ‘How to pursue a successful PhD’.

The final part of the second day was spent on discussions in smaller groups and on planning collaborations on common tasks. The ESRs successfully presented their plans for coming period taking into account the input from the supervisors and other project partners.

During the workshop it has been decided to exchange the GST1 and GST2 events. GST1 to be held in Madrid, Spain will be held in October 2014 instead of June 2014; and the GST2
to be held in Joensuu, Finland will be advanced from October to June 2014.

Based on the reactions of the partners and the ESRs, we can conclude that the first Research Workshop was a success.
