2017 consortium meeting plans

  • AGR (and potential for an "all hands" meeting in the Summer) has disrupted normal plans
  • Will there be an Advisory Board Meeting in 2017?
    • Before AGR, next one was mooted for Spring (at OICR)
  • Will there be near-whole group attendance at the International Worm Meeting?
    • This is the most important meeting for WB! If there is insufficient funds due to AGR meeting(s), could we apply for additional funds (where?) as a one-off?
    • Could we time an AGR all-hands meeting for immediately before/after IWM, to maximise opportunity to attend?
      • Although: two short(er) trips (vs. one long trip) may be easier/preferable for people with families or other responsibilities

Planning for WS259 release and beyond

  • Ideally, need to avoid production/release close to IWM
