Mostly updated. Send material to email@example.com who is responsible for updates. We discussed opening up the Wiki to the public, maybe as part of informing the community before/during the SPIE. This still requires the ability to be able to control access to parts of the page, which in turn requires paying a fee to the wikispace.com people. All agreed that this should be done.
We nedd to think about people to nominate to the panel. We agreed that we should nominate as a group. There are community comments on the web page for the Decadal Review and we should all read these community comments and add comments of our own.
It was agreed that we should invite a representative of LBTI to participate in USIC. Steve will contact Phil Hinz. Including other groups can be done via working groups and the Wiki. The SPIE meeting will be an opportunity to make a broad call to the community.
This is our best oportunity, and last in the important time frame of the Decadal Review, to get the word out that USIC exists and to invite the broader community to participate. We need to get teh word out that there will be a breakout meeting at the SPIE. It was suggested that this would be a good time to initiate working several groups, probably in: technology, science, development of current programs, planning for the more-distant future.
Next meetings to be held on May 7th and June 12th 2008.
Steve: Contact Wes Traub.
Steve: Contact Phil Hinz
Steve: Ask about travel support at NOAO for a possible working group meeting.
Steve: Draft letter to OLBIN, to be reviewed by Theo and Tom.
All: Think about nominees to the Decadal panel.
All: Read and add to comments on NRC Decadal web site (http://www7.nationalacademies.org/bpa/Astro2010.html)
