2014-05-30 Report on the Progress Meeting in Coimbra, May 27-28

The fifth Progress Meeting in GiraffPlus was held at Pólo II of the University of Coimbra, Portugal on May 27-28. Taking place during the 29th month of the 36 month project, the meeting was used both to discuss what actions needed to be done on a short-term basis but also to discuss long-term strategic questions about the GiraffPlus system. It is expected that a new version of DVPIS will be released in June, that version of DVPIS will provide information about the status of test sites on a high-level. Also during June, the work on creating the third video about the GiraffPlus system will be conceived.
