The ASC-Inclusion project is managed by a coordinator, general assembly of project partners, site managers, work package leaders and an advisory board.
The coordinator is responsible for the global project administration, including all technical, financial, and administrative aspects of the project and communicating with the European Commission. The coordinator is mandated by Technische Universität München as the leader of Work package 9: Management.
The general assembly is the ultimate decision-making and executive committee, and is responsible for the overall direction of the project. It is comprised of site managers who represent each project partner and chaired by the coordinator. The general assembly meets at least twice a year to review the progress of the project.
Site Managers are appointed by each project partner to act as a single point of contact for all activities pertaining to that organisation. Each Site Manager is responsible for the completion of all work assigned to his/her site.
Work package leaders are responsible for coordination, planning, monitoring and reporting the activities of their respective work packages, as well as deliverable items and coordination with others in the project.
The advisory board is comprised of relevant experts from industry and academia who will assist in the analysis of each of the technical work packages, especially the dissemination and exploitation tasks. Its distinguished members (and their area of expertise) include:
Dr. Noam Amir - Tel Aviv University, Israel - Affective voice processing
Dr. Rana El Kaliouby – Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT), USA – Affective face processing
Dr. Matthew Goodwin – Groden Center RI, USA - Technology use in ASC
