09.45 – 10.15 * Science Overview and Discussion - A. Wootten

  • RELEVANT CHARGE:
    • *ASAC Charge 1: Report on science results so far and lay the groundwork for future quantitative analysis. Highlight some outstanding science results from SV or Cycle 0 and put them in context of the fields they apply to. Assess what quantitative metrics will be available for assessing scientific impact by finding out what statistics are collected by the various Executives. Comment on whether the intersection of those sets provides sufficient information for the ASAC to evaluate quantitative measures of scientific outcomes from ALMA.

10.30 – 10.45 Break

10.45 – 11.30 Science Demonstration - Wootten, Peck

  • RELEVANT CHARGE:
    • *ASAC Charge 2: Review the goals of Science Demonstration as part of, or as a complement to, Science Verification. Should the current goal of Science Demonstration (Getting cutting-edge ALMA data out to the public) be modified, modulated, or limited now that proposals with proprietary time are being executed and the archive is about to open? How should targets for SV be chosen, announced, and publicized? If the goal is to get some ALMA data out to the public, have SV projects covered the proper spectrum of science areas?
