<dd>There definetly is an idea here people.
<dd>Rick, you may have stumbled onto something that would benefit
everyone that has or is getting a node.
<dd>The idea of having a well planned retreat, would help many of
the things being planned to be implemented.
<dd>Exchanging ideas on things can go a long way.
<dd>I know, most of the new people on the AG Node would really benefit.
<dd> This not only could be a place
for exchanging ideas but I belive Lisa Childers has been looking into
developing a calander of events for the node. If we were all in one place
to meet with each other, we may be able to plan a little better for
<dd> I am at WVU, currently,
and I am working on software for the AG Node.
<dd>This retreat would be a good place to let other people see what work
we are doing at WVU on things. Dr. Frances Van Scoy is here at WVU and of
course is working to see what her VR lab can do to improve and help with
the AG Nodes.
<dd>I know that the people here at the University would also be very
interested in a conference.
<dd>Not only myself, but Dr. Frances Van Scoy would be willing to
support such a venture.
<dd> As far
as the 2 to 3 day format goes, that seems to be one of the best forms for
us people in research.
<dd>Where you thinking in the middle of the week or towards the end?
<dd>The informal paper would be nice too. I would like to see one of the
Universities be able to get funding or in some way publish a regular
formal e-paper or perhaps, even a regular publishing would be nice to
keep the contact flowing with what is new and upcoming. I am checking
into what funding we could get for such a paper. If anyone has any ideas,
please feel free to contact me concerning the funding issue.
