Engagement of Deployment Committees

  • Work item: Interesting presentations could be included in the agenda on a regular basis
  • Purpose: "US/Asia/Europe slots" for such presentations of "interesting topic of the country" (maybe 3/6 times a year)
  • Expected result: more participation in GDC calls
  • Process: Call for presentations to DCs -> make long-term presentation schedule -> do proper advertising and invite (also board)
  • Status work item: Active
  • Process:
  • Step 1: Prominent announcement of the presentation slot (mentioning the GDC call) to GDC and Board
  • Step 2: Presentations given once (in just one GCD call)
  • Step 3: Presentation will be cut out of the general recording and advertised for offline viewing in dedicated emails to the GDC and Board
  • Step 4: Replay presentation in the complementary slot (where the presenting region is not attending)
  • Step 5: Enlist presentation in a "libarary of presentations" on GDC Wiki
  • Action item: Execute annoucement process (Michael)
  • Format of presentation slot:
  • 1) Optional (on decision of the author): 5-7min recorded slides to the topic
  • 2) On decision of the author: Recording will be played -- or -- "live" presentation recorded in the slot scheduled + 13-15min Q&A indepth discussion with call participants with the presenter
  • Total time for presentation + discussion: 20min
  • Including improvements and review of presentations
  • 3) If author AND committee approves, that topic is worth publishing for PR: -> Publishing of the video on IHE Youtube channel

  • "Good experiences" is an important way to support, develop a guideline of success factors, any help regarding getting membership
  • e.g., by setting up work-items/activities/etc. on International level, which are "so interesting" for countries, to that they can use it to advertise local membership
  • Status work item: On hold - waiting for IHE Europe input, results brought to this group as base for staring the work-item::* Pending confirmation
