(No) CE biweekly meeting

Nov 15, 2010

Lars cannot make it on Nov 15 so here is a summary of Thursday's ILG.


Personnel

  • Thierry invited to Princeton Institute for Advanced Studies for 2012-2013
  • Several qualified applicants for postdoc position in Functional Programming
  • Koen L-C will visit Microsoft Research in Cambridge for 3 months
  • Anna-Lena will leave for a position as secretary to President Pam Fredman at Göteborg University!
- Effective beginning of December
- That office seems to be the portal to the Rector's chambers. Ewa Wäingelin went to President Markides, and now Anna-Lena...
- Tiina scheduled to return in March. Most likely a temp until then.

Research and proposals

  • VR framework grant to Dave S (ST)
  • VR project grant to Peter Damaschke (CS)
  • VR project grant to Marina P (NS)
  • Continue to admit students for 5-year PhDs, with 20% work beside studies
- Need better followup of how the 20% are spent
  • Mary S's Ericsson project may get extension
  • Very large number of proposals targeting the SSF and the EU being prepared

Department issues

  • Available office space seems to agree with submitted personnel plans
- ...but with many proposals going in, this situation may be temporary...
  • New telephone policy proposed and adopted

'Tis the Budget season!

  • Dept. forecast for economic result for 2010 inches up
- Now approx. +4M
  • Revenues for 2011 set to fall sharply
- Chalmers Foundation contribution ends
- Central Chalmers funding is reduced
- Funds for teaching cut (international students, etc)
  • 2010 surplus will come in very handy in 2011 :-/
