  1. Announcements
    • Isidoro Ferrante will chair the EGC review team.
  2. A.O.B.
    • Need to have the EGC review team certify the results prior to the March LSC meeting. Can this be done? All reviewers are in Europe, perhaps a review summit in Italy would be possible to make rapid progress.
    • Calibration issues about high-frequency portion of the search is under question -- V4 is not ready.
    • Position reconstruction paper before meeting following March LSC meeting. Uses unreviewed algorithms. Burst group effort only at this moment. Three algorithms: cWB (mostly reviewed -- some more necessary); Bayesian approach (Searle -- part of Omega); triangulation-timing (Michele and others). Based on S5 data. Primarily on simulations. Technical paper.
    • Still some question about the calibraion uncertainty for S5y1 HF search.
