OFIS Notes from 25 Mar 2009

Met from 11am-12:55pm.

Two visitors from Arts: prof, Bruce (Muirhead), associate dean of grad studies; and Carol (x), from Arts Dean's Office PD says: Friday, IST's meeting is on GAP. In Math 2009.

  • Arts may send one or more person from Accounting, Finance, Psych (who are particularly unhappy with GAP)
  • people missing today: Beth Jukes (haven't met?): chair of Mgt. Sci; Olga Vechtomova, prof of Mgt. Sci.
  • OFIS needs different templates for different schools. New version is working on that.
    • What Math/CS committees are involved with designing CS templates?...
  • Spent a while on dev/db problem with existing data from HR not matching dept ID from Office of Research.

Past Tasks:

  • Daniel will look into bibtex output formats. csv? <-- not natively, but it's an easy problem to convert from bibtex markup to any given CSV.
  • Daniel will ask Peter vanBeek about how we keep bibliographies in bibtex. <-- PvB says 90% profs keep their publications records in bibtech; each their own files.
  • Daniel will tell Peter whether we could use a co-op for the summer or fall. <-- not yet done.
  • Daniel will ask Frank Tompa about student evaluation data-flow. <-- not yet done.

Upcoming Tasks:

  • Daniel: Question: is there a mailing list for OFIS dev / policy questions?
    • similarly: is there a policy document other than the code?
  • Daniel: Ask Peter: do publications appear on our records when they're submitted, accepted, or published? [Accepted]
  • Daniel: will advise Peter whether we want a co-op for summer or fall.
