RE: Braidwood Collaboration Phone Conf and Meeting

Hi Mike,
        On the morning of April 5, I will be en route to Sudbury to spend a week
there working on SNO. The trip takes the better part of a day.
I would hate to miss the conference call. Is it possible to reschedule it
prior to April 5? March 31, April 1 and 4 are all good for me.
        Concerning suggestions, I would think that you would want to discuss
strategy in preparing for the review during the early April phone call. You
might even develop an outline of the talk or talks that you envisage giving
at the review, and give out assignments to different individuals or groups,
in terms of pulling together information, slides, etc., for the talk(s) that
would build a coherent and compelling story. You might then think of having
a follow-up conference call about 2 weeks later (still 10 days or more
before the April 29 meeting) to check on progress being made.
        Once the NuSAG members are identified, I would hope that we will be given
sufficient advance notice of how that Group intends to do its work, so we
will know how many talks to prepare for them, how many Braidwood people we
can bring to the NuSAG meeting, etc.

Dear Braidwooders,

As you know, HEPAP and NSAC have been asked by DOE and NSF to set up a new
review committee for neutrino experiments called NuSAG. We were hoping to
get information so that we could start to plan on how we will prepare for
the expected reviews and questions. As of now, we have the charge (see
attachment) that states that NUSAG should address reactor, double-beta, and
accelerator neutrino experiments and produce a report by June 2005. This is
a very fast time scale so one would expect that things will move ahead
rather rapidly.

It, therefore, seems like now is a good time for us to start a series of
meetings leading up to the expected reviews. As a start, it is proposed
that we set up the following meetings:

Phone Conference Tuesday April 5 from 11 am - 1pm

Collaboration Meeting at Fermilab April 29 - 30
April 29 morning reserved for sub-group meetings
April 29 afternoon (1pm - 6pm) Full collaboration meeting
April 30 morning (8am - 1pm) Contd. collaboration meeting

Please let us know if there are problems with these dates or if you have
any suggestions or comments.

Mike and Ed
