  1. Announcements
  2. Review of S5y1 all-sky search papers
    • Low-frequency search [ PDF ]
      • Patrick revised the introduction and rewrote the upper limit section.
      • Jolien will read over. Notes that the cWB section still doesn't have the notation of the LIGO-GEO paper. Jolien will revise this.
      • Review of the upper limit scripts will be done by Patrick this week.
      • Rough prose: would be helpful for someone to look over paper and do some editing. Neil?
      • Target deadline -- Friday for all comments etc.
    • High-frequency search [ PDF ]
      • Include Jonah's slide of reviewer's summary in plenary presentation. No further reviewer comments necessary.
      • Calibration: no update. Keita tweaked on Thursday. Peter will ping him again tomorrow.
  3. A.O.B.
    • S5 GRB paper:
      • Complete, mature draft will be presented to the LSC but with significant amount of reviewing tasks to be done. Seek approval between LV meetings but not at this LV meeting.
      • Awareness of the scope of this paper with Virgo?
    • S4 Cosmic String Paper: scheduled for next week.
    • Stackaflare -- review team getting close to finishing their review; will take this up after the LV meeting.
    • S5y2/VSR1 -- reviews still some weeks off on completion. Jolien feels it is not possible to have this done for APS meeting. Try for Amaldi. Question about whether paper needs to have been submitted for results to be presented.
