Notes

FilteredPush Team Meeting 2014 June 18 Present: Bertram, Jim, Agenda Bertram: Was co-hosting Provenance-Week in Cologne, Germany; actually two events: -- IPAW and TaPP (http://provenanceweek.dlr.de/ ) I was co-chairing both and also giving a talk for a student (Sean Riddle) on "Why-Not" provenance. Tianhong presented a poster (and gave a short "poster lightning talk"). Non-Tech

  • Kurator

- Bertram: Sept. 1, 2014 is the new start date. Got a new budget and UIUC SRO signed off - Still do to do final pass at the abstract, details on international travel, etc. Paul: Need to start thinking about hires, kickoff meeting. Bertram: Kickoff meeting in fall, but not too early (and not too late). Bertram: Good to have an engineering call to think about Kurator platforms soon - that will affect hiring decisions. Discussion of schedules: Bob/Paul/Bertram each not simultaneously available next three weeks. Perhaps a window July 8-9. Otherwise, start discussing by email. The "P" in Kurator/P means "programmable", but can/should also mean Python ..
