1st TMA Workshop was a success !

The 1st TMA Workshop took place in Aachen, Germany on May 11, co-located with the IFIP Networking 2009 conference. Fifteen research papers were presented, selected out of 34 submissions via standard peer-review process, with a minimum of three reviews for each paper. The proceedings are printed in the LNCS series of Springer, Vol. 5537 (link)

Despite being a first-edition single-track one-day workshop, the attendance was very good: the number of participants was in the range of 65-75 (or, if you prefer: 70 +/- 5) and remained steady for the whole duration of the workshop (ok, it was rainy outside, that helped too). There was a good level of interaction, both during the individual presentations' Q&A and at the breaks, especially between young researchers and PhD students. The atmosphere was lively and nobody complained that the duration was stretched one hour longer than planned (the myth of german precision found a rare counterexample ;-) )

These are indeed encouraging facts about the prospective development of the TMA Workshop in the next coming years !

As Chair of the TMA COST Action, I'd like to thank the local organizer, Udo Krieger, together with the supporting RWTH staff. Thanks to the workshop organizing committee, Philippe Owezarsky, Maria Papadopuli and Aiko Pras, and to all the reviewers.

The appointment is for next year in ... [well, I don't know yet for sure, I'll post the future updates to this blog, so keep checking the TMA portal :-) ]
