It’s now roughly a week since the first joint WG and MC meeting of COST Action FP1304 PROFOUND was held in Postdam, Germany, and we’re still in the process of processing the inputs and new ideas that were generated during the meeting. Thanks to all participants for their enthusiasm, to the keynote speakers for their great talks, and to the local organizers Christopher and Alex for the successful organization.
Below, you can find slides of the keynotes and the presentation of the Action and the WGs, as well as further information about the outcome of the discussion in the WGs and the formed TGs.
After discussion in the WGs, 19 Task groups have been formed. Due to the TG world cafe, coordinators have already noted the names of people that expressed interest, but to give everyone (also people that couldn’t attend the meeting) a chance to express interest in the different TGs, we will send out an electronic questionnaire for all task groups early December. Until then, feel free to contact the task group coordinators regarding ideas, but if you just want to express your interest please wait for the form to keep email communication low.
The MC meeting took place after the general meeting. Agenda and minutes can be found below. Thanks to all MC members for serving in this function.
Short-term scientific missions (STSMs)
There is a call for short-term scientific missions within the framework of the action, deadline 10th of December. Details see here
We will announce dates and places of the next large MC/WG meeting and the different Task Group meetings via email and this webpage.
