  1. Announcements
    • Tweaked calibration committee about HF calibration proposal.
    • Amber will be in a position to take over burstmdc and continue the code review by new year.
    • Discussion about bringing equinox document to detection committee. Primary concern is that if we choose to involve the detection committee, would like to know sooner rather than later what tasks they have in store for the group so that there is not undue delay in the process of reviewing a paper. Jolien doesn't think that we are pushing the point where this will be a problem yet so proposes further discussion by email, perhaps arriving at an agreed position by the December LSC meeting.
  2. Update on status of S5 1st Year Burst Search Paper [ HTML ]
    • Progress is being made.
  3. Reports from Burst Review Teams
    • Norna: Badri should be getting in touch with review committee soon.
    • Jolien: Philosophy of DQ flags for non-all-time searches, esp the GRB triggered search. Before: any detector that had a DQ flag on during on-source window would be dropped from analysis. Is that now appropriate? Issues involve having some specified procedure that can also be applied in background and efficiency estimates on off-source data. Also, are cat3 constructed appropriately for triggered searches?
  4. A.O.B.
    • None.
