OFIS Notes from 15 Apr 2009

  • discussed UI issues for new version, if the user is cross-listed in more than one faculty (and has admin powers in both; ex., Olga).
  • noted specific questions on Engr student-evaluation forms (different from Math's).
  • showed PvB's filled-in activity report;
    • noted that activity report (all yearly activity) doesn't usually have common data with research directory (exemplary activity).
  • Question: do different professors put their data in the same formats as PvB?...
  • Also: how consistant are prof data sources for research book entries?

Past Tasks:

  • Daniel: test latex2rtf from http://www.tug.org/utilities/texconv/textopc.html <-- won't work; latex2rtf doesn't attach included packages, necessary to produce tables...
  • Daniel: Ask Frank about post-preprocessing data format <-- asked.
  • Daniel: Bring PvB's filled in Annual Activity Report(s) to next week's meeting.
    • Does this have any common text with his Research Directory entry? <-- not typically; activity report (all yearly activity) doesn't usually have common data with research directory (exemplary activity).
  • Daniel: mail text source data (for research book) to ofis mailing list <-- done.

Upcoming Tasks

  • Daniel: Further investigation of http://www.tug.org/utilities/texconv/textopc.html
  • Daniel: figure out which Engineering prof(s) and admin(s) to talk to ; maybe do a few SQL queries on DB to see who is using it?
  • Daniel: response from Frank about processed data.
  • Daniel: is the format of Peter Van Beek's annual report, similar enough to other profs? Ask other prof(s).
  • Daniel: how much pre-processing is required on research book .txt, to make the data work for the parser? Ask Bill? Peter?
