Friday, Feb. 16, 2007

  • 9:00-10:00: Implications for SELFMAN
  • 10:15-12:15: Discussions on SELFMAN project: results so far, work to do
  • 12:15-14:00: Lunch
  • 14:00-16:00: Final discussions

On Friday I propose that each person responsible for an M12 deliverable give a brief summary of the state of the work (since the end of the first year is getting very close!):

  • D1.1: Low-level self-management primitives for SON: Boris Mejias
  • D1.3a: First report on security: Roland Yap
  • D2.1a, D2.2a, D2.3a: Programming framework: Peter Van Roy
  • D3.1a: Transaction model: Monika Moser
  • D5.1: User requirements: Thierry Coupaye

For D5.1, I propose that we include both ODIS/CLIF and a transactional application -- transactions are an important part of SELFMAN and of business applications, we need to keep them. We should discuss what kind of transactional scenario we can add (all input is welcome!).

For D1.3a, since Roland will not be able to attend this meeting, I propose that he send us his thoughts and first results. I think that an agoric or COIN framework for security is important, but that is just the high level. The deliverable is also about monitoring and mechanisms.
