On EVO use "bersten" to get in, or phone bridge ID 37598 and "6519" to get in.


  1. S5y2/VSR1 all-sky analyses
    • EGC review report: Klimenko would like more detail on loud missed injections, but since it's not used in upper limits it's OK for this one.
    • Omega review report: Says "in progress" checking Hanford outlier and loud injections, will ping Kanner.
    • cWB review report: Where? Ping Sutton to link.
  2. S5y2/VSR1 all-sky paper
    • Main issue is BBH merger result. Klimenko has found an error in his previous document. Owen has some ideas how to calculate it a different way, will circulate. We need to converge, but it's probably not big.
    • Klimenko has been collecting small comments on paper, will clean them up and e-mail when done. Then we'll give more.
    • Question of bibliography raises a broader issue: Easiest way to get it consistently is copy SLAC-SPIRES bibtex entries, though they require slight reformatting. We should do that as a standard thing. Also arXiv author list (which these automated readers use) is starting to get standardized.
    • Next telecon will be largely dedicated to astro conversion. This pops up in many contexts and we need to get it right once and for all.
