Frequently Asked Questions
If I send a project proposal, am I assumed to attend the workshop from start to end?
Each project should have a project leader. In the best of all worlds, this
should be a senior researcher willing to spend a month at the workshop
location. In practice, a young PhD or PhD Student close to graduation
could take the lead, possibly with email/video links with a senior
researcher. It is the privilege of the person who proposes the
project, however, to find a leader if he cannot attend the workshop
Who pays for the workshop?
SIMILAR member participants will pay for travel, lodging, and catering using
their SIMILAR money. Participation to an event such as eNTERACE is not
only an "elegible" cost, but even a "desirable"
cost. Think of this : in one month of time, you will
make life-log connections with other teams, and create plenty of
scientific and technological material to use as a justification in
your semestrial SIMILAR statements.
Costs, however, will be kept to a minimum; by using the University offices, bedrooms, and restaurant.
Non SIMILAR member participants will be welcome too, but will have to pay for costs on their own money.
We also intend to pay for the
travel, lodging, and catering costs of undergraduate students (who
will be selected after the call for participation), as an
encouragement for excellence in their studies. Last but not least, we
will invite guest speakers and pay for their costs. This will be paid
by sponsors and use a special SIMILAR budget set aside for these goals.
How will teams be organized?
A call for participation
will be launched (not restricted to SIMILAR members). Project leaders
will naturally have the possibility to send people from their own
team, and CVs of other participants will be dispatched to Project
leaders after being screened by the Scientific Comittee, so as to
balance all teams and make sure each team has the best chances to
What comes after eNTERFACE05?
We will also launch soon a call for bids for eNTERFACE 06.
