The selection of network activities and the allocation of the activities fund will be managed by the network steering committee, with approval by the network management board at the annual network management board meeting. Network activities will be supervised and coordinated by a number of standing committees. Each standing committee will receive and review proposals for activities from network nodes or associates. The standing committee will make a recommendation to the steering committee for funding and budget.
The following standing committees are proposed for the first year of operation.
|Standing committee on Infrastructure||Professor Giulio Sandini|
|Standing committee on Educational Activities||Professor Hans-Helmut Nagel|
|Standing committee on Industrial Activities||Dr. Philippe Greenway|
|Standing committee on Scientific Activities||Professor Erik Granum|
|Standing committee on Software Environments Specification||Professor Olivier Faugeras|
|Standing committee on Benchmarking Activities||Dr. Patrick Stelmaszyk|
A proposal for a network activity should be submitted to the network coordinator and forwarded for review to the chairman of the appropriate standing committee. The proposal will list the way in which the activity will be carried out and the proposed budget. The standing committee will evaluate the proposal and allocate the necessary funds. Although proposals may be submitted at any time, the budget must be broken into periods which correspond to the annual budget of the network. Thus a regular (annual) calender for receiving and reviewing activity proposals will be established.
