  • 18B
    • TAC Meeting Post-mortem. DanaBalser summarized the TAC meeting post-mortem. Below are some issues discussed at the TTA meeting.
      • Thesis Plan: The TAC had several suggestions (mostly related to improving the instructions). One was to use the graduation date to automatically change their professional status. We agreed that this was not a good idea but we could send them an email to ask them if their status has changed. Or to have a pop-up when a student changes their affiliation.
      • Preliminary Priorities: For some proposals (e.g., GMVA, HSA, Triggered, Multi-configuration) we assign a preliminary priority as "N" for different reasons (e.g., our TAC does not assign priorities (e.g., GMVA) or we do not want to include them in the pressure plots (e.g., Triggered). The TAC suggested that we label these differently; for example, "(N)". The TTA group felt that this was not really necessary and since there may be differences between telescopes we should be clear before each presentation what we are doing.
      • GW Source Conflicts: The TAC was concerned that there will be more proposals of this type in the future and should we handle these differently. BarryClark disagreed and felt that this fad would decrease in time just like GRBs.
    • Directors' Review. The plan is to release info on Friday (11 May). MarkClaussen will complete the VLBA sometime today.
  • 19A
    • Timeline. Please send any comments on the 19A timeline to DanaBalser.
    • Reviewer Volunteer Page. MarkClaussen reported that within two days of the E-News article we received 10 volunteers and none since. He has uploaded this information to the google doc.
    • PST Requirements. LorantSjouwerman still needs to include some pulsar requirements and MarkClaussen will update the ETC requirements with new data for C-band. The plan is to start initial testing on 25 May 2018.
    • SRP Recruitment. Some action from AmyMioduszewski and BrianMason.
  • X-Proposal EOI Form. MarkClaussen and LorantSjouwerman provided some feedback. DanaBalser will send this to LewisBall for review.
