        • 2. Review the revised Calibration Plan for ALMA
        • 3. Review the existing work on developing complete descriptions of the ALMA observing modes (e.g. software, hardware etc.) and make recommendations as to their relative priority
        • 4. Any other matters that you want to bring to the Board's attention.
