4. Work plan

The work plan for further and national steps support must be well articulated with the previewed plan for complete system development under EU support. Therefore before description of the work plan for first stages, the role played within the whole system deployment is as follows.

4.1 DomusBITae overall workplan

The plan envisaged for Domus BITae deployment is divided in the following work-packages

WP-1:     Design of the DomusBITae Knowledge System (specification of modules)

WP-2:     Development of Web Template

WP-3:     Development of Directory of Information Studies Communities

WP-4:     Dumping of FIS, SoII and BITrum into DomusBITae

WP-5:     Development of Repository: institutional and thematic

WP-6:     Dumping of preliminary contents into Repository

WP-7:     Development of Working Group Toolkit

WP-8:     Development of eMeeting Room

WP-9:     Development of Meta-community glossary

WP-10:    Integration and assessment of the DommusBITae system

WP-11:    Launching the DommusBITae system

WP-12:    Coordination and neetworking

The asked support for further and national stages mainly concern WP1 (for core system), WP2 and WP4. In the PERT diagram (figure 3), the relation among the different tasks for the whole system development and the work related to this first-stages proposal (shaded) is clearly shown.

A network-system for the collaborative work in proposals, fitted to the corresponding calls, has been developed and started to work in January 2010, named StylusBITae and announced to the involved institutions (users StylusBITae).

4.2 Strategy for further and national steps development

To engage the necessary parts to develop the virtual community, we plan to make a combination of system development, community gathering and proposal advance, following next steps:

First, a critical team must be committed for the development of the demonstration and training system (including module 1 of the system depicted in figure 1); and a scientific and technical committees must be gathered for the supervision and approval of design and developments.

Second, the system is designed following target necessities and knowledge oriented system criteria.

Third, the core system is developed and launched after instantiation of well centred international communities (FIS and SoII)

Forth, the initiative is disseminated for international support in the target community and the design is steered by means of a preliminary appraisal of the demonstration system from the target community.

Five, a consortium is elected and a kernel proposal (adaptable to different calls) agreed for international competition.

4.3 Work packages, Milestones and deliverables

Work-packages:

WP1:    Knowledge oriented system design, leaded by UB

WP2:    Development of web-templates according to system design and dumping of first communities for demonstration (SoII and FIS)

WP3:    Designing and development of demonstration modules of the planed e-Infrastructures for the virtual community. Assessment by a target community representation

WP4:    Call for international community support: scientific committee, open community, including design approval and consortium constitution (for that means, the participation in some international gathers, where coordinators act as co-organisers, is planned for promotion of domusBITae (see [BITrum site]>[3. activities]>[gathering & meetings]).

WP5:    Coordination of development, scientific and management committees.

Timing: (two degrees of activity are distinguished)
