CoMETE is shining more and more FoSSA 2012 Projects We began with the paradigm : one student = one project To make the student responsible of his/her project Even if cooperation was encouraged ( and taken into account in the final evaluation ! ) But students claimed to work as a team They are afraid to be alone against the whole community The first level of help is always their colleagues We have observed that they do not use IRC enough : they do not dare ! They want to investigate themselves in bigger projects We also want To propose longer projects : all over the year To propose new projects more oriented to research Fossa Conference 2012 7/1214 sur 21 J.BENZAKKI & D.
