Our formal Call for Participation for the AG Technical Retreat 2002 will be 
coming soon.  The tutoria/retreat will take place on or near the San Diego 
Supercomputing Center campus.

In the meantime, I would like to give you an opportunity to throw me some 
ideas for the program track at the Retreat.  Below is a start.  Any emails 
you might have already sent to me or Rick will eventually be incorporated 
in this list.  A Program Committee, headed by Rick Stevens, will finalize 
the topics for the AG Retreat Technical 2002.

Again, this is for the Retreat itself, rather than the Tutorial.

Please be concise.  This should be a short item.  There is some framework 
below for ideas, but a simple blurb will do.

General Topic: Testing of New AG Nodes
Detail:  Certain things should be in place before running an AG event, 
(i.e. registering your node, providing contact information, testing your 
node with others, grabbing a guide for first-time events).
Solution(s):  Establish bi-monthly testing cruises to go over general AG 
topics and dppt software - open to anyone and everyone. Provide a 
guide/checklist for all new users/speakers online.
POC:  Mary Fritsch, fritsch at mcs.anl.gov

Some initial ideas :

AG 2.0 Release Status
AG Documentation Project
ACE GGF Research Progress Report
Automated NCSA AG Scheduler
Linux: Open Source Solutions for High Quality Video
Implementation Resources
Self-Supportive, Self-Testing AG Nodes or Communities

List of Efficient Resources Needed to Support the AG Community
Commercial Packing Companies
