  1. Announcements: None
  2. Reports from Burst Review Teams
    • Norma: BN-CP review is going smoothly.
    • Patrick Sutton: LIGO-GEO search is nearing completion. This week will draw up a list of final checks.
    • Discussion of whether to parallelize cWB review to handle the S5-1yr and the S5-SGR searches. Patrick thinks that it would be inefficient to have two groups reviewing very similar thing. Brian thinks that the S5-SGR is a significant new review that should be done in parallel. Burst group priority is S5-1yr but real concern is that the review of this search should not be pushed into the fall. If S5-SGR could be completed before that then it may be OK to do things in sequence. Need to resolve this over the week.
  3. Review of BurstMDC Simulation
    • Request from the ExtTrig group to review the ExtTrigBurstMDC code after the BurstMDC review is complete.
    • Looked at Patrick Sutton's diagrams of the reviewed BurstBDC routines. Patrick will put the PPT into CVS and Keith will put boxes around the code that still needs to be reviewed.
    • Updated GravEn code [ HTML ]
      • Reviewed changes to randomangle. New version is correct.
      • Reviewed changes to getdetrate. Not happy with using "V2" as "Virgo channel at 16384 Hz" because: (i) Previous confusion about V2; (ii) Possibility that V2 may mean something else in the future; (iii) Possibility that various sample rates of other IFOs would be needed and such a scheme is not extensible. However, solution seems to be a working one for now.
  4. A.O.B.
    • Next week we will start doing the X-Pipeline reviews following the Burst Review Committee meeting. (Only the X-Pipeline Review team will need to be at these meetings of course -- this is not an extension of this meeting.)
