On EVO use "bersten" to get in, or phone bridge ID 39354 and "6519" to get in.


  1. S5y2/VSR1 all-sky analyses
    • CWB report: Sutton did sign off on analysis. Looks like we're good.
    • End times: We are good.
    • Table II: Salemi reports EGC values need to be updated w/calibration uncertainties (up to 20pct for high frequency). TASK: SALEMI (DONE!)
  2. S5y2/VSR1 all-sky paper
    • Author list: Has always been there at "final draft" stage (LaTeX version). TASK: SHAWHAN
      Prodi: Virgo November list is not yet ready, but can note it when presenting to LIGO.
    • Astro rates: Can't rescale for circular polarizations, realistic inclination angles. Owen can't think of quantitative estimate of errors without running new MDCs. Will cut BBH paragraph and notify. TASK: OWEN
    • Figures: Fig.1 needs bigger fonts, can wait. TASK: SALEMI
      Fig.2 Owen: comparing LIGO-GEO S4 paper, it looks wrong! Shall we ditch it? Yes. TASK: OWEN
      Table I cWB H1L1 number is funny, fix it and caption. TASK: OWEN
      Fig.3: Owen OK, leave as is.
    • Other: Owen needs to revise text around Eq.(7.3), explain linear polarization factor, correct it from 1.08 to 1.17. TASK: OWEN.
      Someone should check factor, can wait for after presentation.
      Some references need (XXX Collaboration) removed. TASK: RE
