All-Hands Variability Expedition Meeting

The first Variability All-Hands Meeting will be held at the University of California Irvine campus on November 19th and November 20th, 2010.  All the Variability PIs and their students and collaborators are invited and required to attend. The meeting will start on the evening of Friday November 19th and then continue throughout the day on Saturday November 20th. The AHM will start with the PIs of the project giving an overview of the entire project, providing the vision, the co-ordination plans and the meeting agenda. The rest of the AHM is structured as a series of exciting talks by our various Variability Co-PIs with Question and Answer sessions at the end of each session. On Saturday we will also have several Breakout sessions with a summary towards the end of the day for each of those breakout sessions. The goal of this All-Hands Meeting is for all the PIs and their students to get to know each other well and form small collaborative teams targeting specific projects towards the overall vision of the Variability Expeditions.

We are very excited and hope you can all join us with your students for this Kick-Off meeting and help make this expeditions in Computing a resounding success!
