DELOS All Tasks Meeting
Paris, France
30-31 January 2006

DELOS has organised an "All Tasks Meetng", which was held in Paris on 30 and 31 January 2006, at the Etoile Saint-Honore conference center, in Rue Balzac 20/25 (very close to Etoile).

During this Meeting, all the Tasks of the second Joint Program of Activities (JPA2) were presented in terms of their objectives, achievements and future plans. Particular attention was placed on the integration of the Tasks, according to the suggestions made by the Integration Task Force. Indeed a special session of this meeting was dedicated to the identification of possible integration activities between the Tasks.

Another important item discussed during this meeting regards an initiative planned for the third Joint Program of Activities (JPA3), which aims at implementing a reference digital library architecture based on the OSIRIS platform. A session was dedicated to the presentation of the platform, providing also guidelines for integrating in it additional digital library functionality. For this purpose, there have been also two "demo sessions" dedicated to prototypes showing DL functionality suitable for integration within the OSIRIS platform.

This has been a very good opportunity to get a complete view of all the research activities presently going on in the DELOS community. The meeting was open to anyone interested to those activities. For more information please send email to
