Debrief from User Modeling Symposium

Debrief from User Modeling Symposium from last Monday: 36 participants, very well prepared, also arc notes. Transcript online in the next few weeks.

Christos: The symposium went really well, nice discussion, specially the last half an hour discussion. Interesting for the future topic.
... tip for future symposiums, make a script fo the questions (who to ask, what to ask) which can be useful for the future, also to fit the questions in the time frame.
... another tip for the future. Th script also help the participants to follow in the #rd chanel.

by copying the questions in the #rd channel.

Shadi: We also had question about the symposiums from some companies (e.g IBM) which briges the academic research and the industrial research. The people who came online were very knowlegdable from the domain.
... During the five minutes break at the beginning none left, which shows the interest of the people.
... the break was usefull to keep up concentration. A break before was better than a break later on.

Christos: With the organized questions in the symposioum, one feel safer.

It woudl be helpful to add these advises in the group wiki.

Shadi: When we will have the first drafth to review?

Christos: We plan to take the work during the summer. By the end fo september we will have the first draft for the group to review.

Shadi: Take a look at the timeline that Simon sent.
