Third ESC Meeting, Princeton, 18-19 October 2007

Meeting goals

The intent of the meeting is

  • to recap where we stand;
  • identify activities outside our projects (Curator and Metafor) that are looking to us to fulfil key roles (e.g IPCC AR5);
  • identify the strategically most important areas to work on during Year 3 of Curator, Year 1 of Metafor;
  • develop a work plan for Year 3/1. (I don't of course mean to imply that we will lay down requirements on Metafor... this is more by way of coordination).
