Dear All,

The agenda is now being finalised and will cover:

a) status updates on the Gaia project - the mission and the data processing consortium DPAC.

c) updates from new initiatives organised between the working groups - such as the GREAT Chemo-Dynamical Survey (GCDS).

The meeting will also give an opportunity for attendees and representatives of the GREAT working groups to discuss and develop, in the breakout sessions, new initiatives to bring forward in the year for further development.

The Plenary is a good opportunity to get up to date with developments around the Gaia science community. Thus if you plan on attending please register soon - the deadline being Tues 15th June 2010.
