Gaia GREAT Plenary Meeting: 19+20 Nov 2009: Nice, France



Dear All,

for those of you aiming to attend the meeting in Nice n the 19+20 Nov 2009 - the final agenda is now available on the meeting wiki pages at http://camd08.ast.cam.ac.uk/Greatwiki/GreatMeet-20091119

The breakout sessions are being organised by the working group facilitators - the list of which can be found at http://camd08.ast.cam.ac.uk/Greatwiki/CategoryWorkgroups

If you have discussion items that you will like to include there please let the chairs of the sessions - as found on the wiki pages know. Also - if you have a specific short presentation that you'd like to make presenting ideas for workshops next year (2010) to go into the Activity Session - see http://camd08.ast.cam.ac.uk/Greatwiki/GreatPM2Activity - please let me know.

As a reminder - one theme for the meeting is what needs will there be in the area of wide field spectroscopy to further science in the era of Gaia - and what would the Gaia community prioritise (in the context of future survey programmes, access to facilities and so forth). As you come to meeting, perhaps you could have ideas in this area ready to discuss/present in the Breakout group sessions.

Finally - for those of you not able to attend - you can contribute still via the wiki pages.

Looking forward to seeing you all in Nice

Yours,

Nic Walton
