1) A list of all registered participants seeking room-shares can be
To get added to the list, you need to register and request room sharing
2) A preliminary agenda for the meeting is also available at

explanation and input from the community.
This meeting is primarily a discussion workshop structured around a
set of focused questions and goals. The first day addresses what we
know and can already do. The second day is focused on future
challenges and developing goals for CIG software development. The eight
specific discussion sections are listed in the agenda along with
example topics and suggested discussion leaders.
Please review the agenda and send us (mspieg at ldeo.columbia.edu,
lmontesi at whoi.edu) any revisions or additional topics that you feel
strongly should be discussed within the context of the sessions. Also
if you would like to lead (or not lead) a particular discussion, let
Please come prepared to engage in the discussion and bring with you
any materials or short presentations demonstrating fundamental
observations and/or current modeling/theoretical capabilities that
support the overall discussion.
4) In addition, we encourage all participants to prepare a one-page
"wish-list" powerpoint or overhead that addresses the two questions
A) Science Objectives: What are the important
that you would like to address?
B) Software Objectives: What software/computational tools do you
need to make progress?
(i.e. how can CIG help?)
Some examples can be found at
Everyone will have an opportunity to present their wish-lists on
(Session #5) but if you can please send us your power-points before
the meeting we can structure the sessions to be more efficient.
That's all for now...If you have any further questions please contact
me or Laurent
