ANNIE Meeting Minutes, Oct 30 2013:
On call: Matt, Francesca, Bob S, Bob W, Henry F, Hank S, Mayly
Meeting started with an announcement from Matt: the PAC meeting has been pushed to January. EOI will not be due until mid December. But, we would still like to post a snapshot on arXiv by early Nov.
The following notes are shorthand and hard to follow, I will clean them up shortly:
The general consensus was that, while the text is generally good and all-there, the organization of said text needs work. To paraphrase Bob S: We need to tell a story and that's not coming across yet.
Mayly: -Combination of physics and R&D - doesn't think there's enough parity -Focus on the neutron yield, but point out what's interesting -SN neutrino case is weak - need to talk with Mike Smy -Swap Section 4 and 3 (experiment with R&D) -Use timing-based fiducial cuts in the experiment section to frame the R&D tasks -Maybe not separate sections for each R&D goal
Bob S - Executive Summary to tie the two components “story doesn't come through” LAPPDs are useful. We would like to test them. We have a physics measurement where they are needed.
Henry - Hardware as goal, not a necessity Mayly - “List of Tasks” Henry - seconds Mayly switch sections Francesca thirds that Francesca - material is there agrees it needs to be reorganize
Bob's two tasks operate LAPPDs in water Picosecond reconstruction
Look into alternatives for the SciBooNE pit, but not in the proposal
