NEW IMPORTANT: Replaced by the Sprint telecon 1 (March 25th 2020)

The folloing event was canceled due to the efects of the COVID-19


Due to the Corona Virus crisis, at short notice, the WeObserve CoPs Forum #5 is changed into an ONLINE event only. We are seizing the situation as an opportunity to advance our online collaboration in innovative ways. In the end, the remote event was also cancelled. The interop CoP is considering a series of Sprints to substitute this event

Logistic information

In order to make this a fruitful and productive experience, we suggest the following Ways of Working during this ONLINE CoPs Forum #5:

We will:
  • Use the time otherwise spent travelling for working online together instead
  • Work in short sprints of 1:30h with concrete objectives (decided a-priori or at the beginning of the sprint).
  • Separate sprints with opportunities to work alone on some aspects of the discussions and obligation to report progress back in the reporting back session.
  • During sprints or work-alone sessions, try to avoid emails as much as possible for a fruitful meeting. A GoToMeeting will be open for sporadic chat or verbal communications.
  • Include some long breaks to deal with emails or inevitable interruptions (or to eat smile ). We have to be realistic. People also have other obligations.
  • Spread the event over the three days using only mornings and part of the afternoons to allow people to do other things in between.
Participants are advised to:
  • Look for a place that is not your own office. In the office, interruptions are common and you "fall-for-them". A meeting room or a video room could be ideal; working from home may also be a good option.
  • Be active and join the discussions, provide comments.
  • Use your video camera - this can help in the discussion.
