The 6th ICARUS Plenary meeting was held on November 5th-6th, 2019, hosted by SingularLogic in Athens. The agenda of the meeting was structured along 4 main slots: (a) general activities slot, (b) technical progress update and planning workshop, (c) demonstrators’ workshop, and (d) impact creation slots.
The 2nd day of the ICARUS plenary meeting was focused initially on the demonstrators and the expected internal validation of the ICARUS platform. Each demonstration partner provided a summary of the current progress (scenario overview, test case execution status), reiterated the demonstration execution plan for M24 (discussing updates, whenever relevant), explained the hands-on experience from the ICARUS platform so far (issues identified, new features requests, etc.) and defined the plan for the first evaluation in December 2019, with regards to the business and technical KPIs assessment and the performance requirements from the ICARUS platform. Extensive discussions were carried out during the dissemination, communication and stakeholder engagement activities in order to ensure that the ICARUS project maximizes its outreach and effectively plans its next actions, especially with regard to the ICARUS workshops and hackathon. Since the plenary meeting was open for the participation of both members of the ICARUS Ethics Advisory Board, a slot was reserved for discussing their feedback and recommendations. Finally, the meeting concluded with the administrative issues wrap up, including the planning for the next plenary meetings.
