This is the "behind the scenes" place for the MMS SWT to coordinate their development efforts in service to the broader science community.

Next Science Working Team / Group Meeting

25-27 (T-W-Th) March 2014 at the University of Iowa: Logistics Information  | Agenda

For those traveling to Iowa, please plan to join the team dinner.  Jim Burch has established a dinner talk series in which someone from the MMS team shares their "passion" outside of space physics.  Here in Iowa we will hear from Craig Kletzing, a Fields team member and a Van Allen Probes instrument PI that has a rock band.  After dinner, all welcome to move over to a local bar or club or something like that where the band has been booked for the evening.  We have heard some inspiring stories at previous dinners and I expect Kletzing's personal history will be just as inspiring.

Head count needed for the team dinner on Tuesday, March 25.  A menu has been circulated and the cost will be $35/person, not including drinks that folks will order on their own. Please pass this along to your team members that will be attending.  Notify Craig Kletzing of your intent to attend the dinner by COB Thursday, March 20.

Some interesting guests planning to attend our SWT meeting:

It may be of interest to know that one of the two GRL editors for our scientific subdiscipline plans to attend the March SWT meeting. Beniot Lavraud of the
Institut de Recherche en Astrophysique et Planétologie is an editor for magnetospheric and heliospheric physics.  (Bill Peterson of LASP is the second editor)

Also, the Director for the Heliophysics Division -- Dave Chenette -- and our MMS Program Scientist -- Dave Klumpar -- plan to attend.  We will appreciate having their time and support as we press toward launch!
