 +  The idea arose from the situation of 2 of us having problems with our accommodation situation.
 +  The reasons behind this proposal were:
 +  ​
 +  *For international students the main option for housing is LOAS, which is of great help,
 +   but also is clearly unable to fully accommodate all the students in the area.
 +  *Other options, such as other companies or private landlords, usually do not rent to foreigners.
 +    ​
 +  However, we did not have a clear idea of what tool or service we needed to develop to solve these problems.
 +  Also we did not make a final decision on this topic, we also agreed to think of more possible projects, until our next meeting. ​
 +=== Meeting 27 Sept 2014: ===
 +In this meeting other ideas were proposed by other team members. We also discussed about possible developments for the previous and new ideas:
 +  *Real time transportation schedule of Lappeenranta city.
 +  *Shopping Center application for digital advertising and information
 +After some discussion, the team agreed to drop the accommodation and housing idea, and merge the shopping center and transportation ideas into one application.
 +=== Meeting 10 Oct 2014: ===
 +  *Developed the Shopping center/​Transportation application,​ and defined a conceptual architecture for the system
 +  *Defined how the system would operate
