Minutes

  1. Announcements
    • Review Document -- probably will look at it next week.
      • Missing items: Omega pipeline; cWB review of the loudest background events.
      • Need to make clear that the review of these analyses is not completed. Should the review be done before going forward to the detection committee?
    • Review Teams with Virgo membership. At least one person from Virgo to be part of each review team.
    • Making a timeline would be helpful.
      • Virgo: identify people to be part of review -- by next telecon hopefully.
      • EGC search opened end of October.
      • Would be nice to have a Europe-centered member involved in the EGC review.
  2. Update on status of S5 1st Year Burst Search Paper [ HTML ]
    • Michele contacted people to get plots. They should have more time now. Another writer is being added. Goal is to have a draft in two weeks.
  3. Reports from Burst Review Teams
    • Responses for the S4 LIGO-GEO paper have been made. Take a brief look at those.
  4. Latest draft of the S5yr1 HF search [ PDF ]
    • Time for Review Committee to make comments on paper.
    • Calibration uncertainty and sensitivity estimates still TBD.
  5. Review of BurstMDC Simulation
    • BurstMDC Bulletin Board [ HTML ]
    • BurstMDC code change log [ HTML ]
    • Web interface to code release BurstMDC_S5_v3 (S5 FirstYear) [ HTML ]
    • Web interface to matapps CVS (S5 Second-Year, diffs) [ web ]
  6. A.O.B.
    • Siong's changes to LIGO-GEO paper in response to CQG review [ TEXT ].
      • Will iterate on first point off-line.
      • Will iterate on last point off-line.
      • Final response to be circulated to burst group.
