Saturday, March 10th, 2011

9:00 to 9:45 Bobby Karimi and Lindsay Williams will lead an informal discussion on their project plans.
10:00 – 12:00 small group discussions and planning for next year. We should probably hold two different sessions so that people who need to plug into several groups have the opportunity.

1:00 to 2:00 continue small group discussion if necessary.
2:00 to whenever – whole group discussion of steps toward integrations. Where can we make concrete connection at this stage? Ultimately, how will we bring the various data sets and approaches together?
