Thursday 17th November

Agenda

  • Alex : make the wiki faster : how ? software / hardware solutions ?
  • Alex : security is never perfect... do we have a daily backup of the database (ie all wiki contents) ?
  • Marco Dorigo (MD): I would like to discuss the "duration" of MEETOPT and MEETROBOTS meetings.

It seems to me that we should set a firm limit to the talk and discussion parts. May be 30 min each?

  • MD: Time change for MEETADMIN of Dec 8, 2005
  • MD: People should identify themselves when producing items in this list
  • Usage policy for HD space on the rack/cluster
  • Online career development plan
  • Coffee machine: This time we will choose which one to buy
  • IRIDIA Christmas dinner
  • IRIDIA lab webpage - It is not reall necessary to discuss this point as it is already in the works since long (but before we work on it we need to have the database ready and filled, which will take a few weeks more) and it will be finalised sooner or later!
  • New conferences
  • New Wiki pages
  • Misc
