Video connection testing will be done with Iain Goodenow by Friday, July 24. There will not be any time to resolve any video issues Monday morning.

The video bridge is Do NOT call the polycom directly. The unit only supports three incoming calls, two of which are required for IPAC due to technical issues.

We will be using the DM conference line for audio (contact Iain Goodenow or Jeff Kantor for number if you don't know it).

We will start 8a PT/9a MT/10a CT/11a ET each day, please establish your audio/video connections prior to this start time.


The meeting objective is to produce a resource-loaded plan for DC3b and concurrent R&D activities (e.g. Astro2010, PDR) to ~85% accuracy/completeness.
