Questions from Joseph Mariani:

- Do we agree that evaluation is an important issue in LE?

- Some people say "It kills science."
        - Is it true?
            - How to avoid it if true or partly true.
                    -Organizing 'rendez-vous" with Basic Research

- Black box vs other evaluation

        - glass box
            - grey box

- Predictive vs a posteriori evaluation

- end-to-end evaluation:  socio-, economic, program evaluation?

- political issues:
    -what to do with laboratories not performing well?
        -problem with European situation: several countries with
various research agenda in different fields
        -competitive approach in cooperative European framework?

- technology vs user evaluation

- Multilingual aspects: should we conduct tests on all languages?

- Need for permanent infrastructure: how to deal with it in a project
oriented program? Where to find the 50% matching funding? Necessary to
have 100% funding?

- Financial support to all participants? to any? funding for system
development? for evaluation only?

- Evaluation shouldn't be organized by LE people? (cf Blasband's comment
distributed earlier about getting end users involved in evaluation).

Questions based on notes taken by the organizers during the workshop.
