Non-visual and Multimodal Visualization, CFP

Dear S2S^2 people,
    let me point to this Conference in Europe, as a possible place to 
present new results of our research and to disseminate the activities 
of our Action.  It is especially important because there will be 
several "non-sound" people, and because it is associated with the large 
conference on Information Visualization.
I am in the programme committee, let me know if you have special ideas 
or if you intend to submit a contribution.

regards

[Fwd: [Wg-audio] Annotated bibliography release]

As some of you already know, today the Audio WG released the first 
annotated bibliography.
Congratulations to Cumhur and all the participants to the Audio WG! Well 
done!!

Subject: 	[Wg-audio] Annotated bibliography release

Dear Audio WG members (and WP Coordinator, Music-WG and Control-WG leaders),

Our first annotated bibliography release can be downloaded from the project 
workspace:

http://gforge.s2s2.org/projects/wg-audio/

Thanks to you all for your active contribution. The sources are in the CVS and 
we'll surely improve the annotated bibliography in the future.

There are no other tasks that I am aware of until the Helsinki Meeting, except 
the preperation of the agenda of our wg-audio meeting. After our two tasks it 
is organizing itself, as can be assessed from the last threads in the mailing 
list.

July 2005: Summer School proposal


Dear friends,

please find attached a  report  written  by  Damien  Cirotteau  about  a
meeting that we held in Canazei last week during the  SCoCoDe  workshop,
dedicated to this next S2S^2 summer school. We would definitely like  to
finalize the organization of the summer school  in  Genova  in  Helsinki
during our next meeting, so here you have an  opportunity  to  catch  up
with the discussion and present suggestions/proposals/etc.

We kept the discussion in the report because it carries out much of  the
rationale about the current proposal. If you are in  a  hurry,  you  may
skip directely to the proposal, which starts where the following lines:

**********************************
***** SUMMER SCHOOL PROPOSAL *****
**********************************

are.

Your comments are more than welcome. Please post on this  list  so  that
everybody is in sync and can participate.

I would like to thank every participant for their  effort  in  preparing
this.

Best regards to all,

Nicola

newscollector mail alias


Dear friends,

we have installed a mail alias:

	newscollector@...

(which is currently pointing to Damien's e-mail address) where  you  can
send all the bits and pieces of news S2S^2-related  which  you  find  of
particular interest. Damien will do the collection and: 1) post the news
onto the website 2) possibly, we will start an  S2S^2  newsletter  which
will carry our news plus some  of  the  news  collected  with  the  news
collector (if we deem this useful).

Best regards,

Nicola

Thank you for the info. I think it would be nice, indeed, to present S2S^2 in
some way - or at least to let people know that the action exists, give
coordinates, etc. (perhaps we should start thinking to a brochure of some
sorts, too).

Is anybody planning to go?

Best regards to all,

Nicola

Re: [S2S^2-Consortium] S2S2 at ICMC '05


Dear Xavier, thank you for all the proposals...

I think that this mail should go to the discuss <at>  list, at least  as  far
as the conceptual issues go.  I  am  replying  there.  Please  keep  the
conceptual stuff in the discuss <at>  list (we need that to be  the  livelier
list! :).

what is the difference between 1. and 2.? I remember BOFs from Usenix

July 2005: Summer School proposal

Dear partners,

as mentioned by Nicola, during the Helsinki meeting we will have to 
finalize the organization of the Genova summer school.
During the SCoCoDe workshop in Canazei we came up with a draft proposal 
of a bottom-up organization that includes hand-on sessions on two 
selected topics. This implies a careful preparation of the work in the 
months before the school.

At present it is not completely clear to me how to organize these 
hands-on sessions in practice. Therefore I think that the discussion 
should focus on this aspect. In Helsinki we should try to find concrete 
and detailed proposals that implement the "working session" idea.
In my opinion we should also be ready with a backup solution, i.e. a 
more traditional summer school format structured in mini-courses.

In any case we should evaluate how much effort to invest in the school, 
in proportion with the other things we have to do within the project and 
with reference to the long term objectives of  S2S2.

Any comment and suggestion before the meeting is welcome.
Moreover I will arrive to Helsinki saturday 8 jan afternoon and I will 
glad to discuss there with the partners eventually present.

Regards and best wishes to all,
Giovanni
