  1. Announcements
    • Ben Owen will take over as review chair in July.
    • Next two burst review meetings are cancelled.
  2. A.O.B.
    • Equinox report: can material from this be made public? Not all of the material but some of it. Perhaps the review committee could look at a stripped-down version of material that group might want to present?
    • GRB -- final presentation was made at Arcadia meeting? Final draft needs to be produced, reviewed, circulated. Hopefully will go to exec committee in June.
    • Omega review: goal is end of June.
    • Get a report from the review team chairs about timeline for drafting review documents and giving presentations to the committee.
    • Would like a near final draft of paper. Just recently resolved the discrepance between Omega and cWB analyses (different livetimes for H1H2 analysis 20%, time removed by L1 by Cat2 or Cat3 flags was kept in the H1H2 analysis with Omega but not cWB). BIC will be a paragraph in the discussion. EGC calibration uncertainties, not clear how to include them, not going to be in the UL. However, the efficiencies in the tables have these uncertainties.
    • Discussion of uncertainties: efficiency curves are not expanded by the uncertainties but the values in the table. Note: in S5 the efficiency curves themselves had a systematic and statistical uncertainties added.
    • EGC needs to provide calibration uncertainties.
