Break-out Group Details

  • A sign-up list will be circulated early in the Workshop (Tuesday) so that attendees can indicate in which Break-out group they will participate. We need to match the group size with the satellite conference room capacity.
  • The meeting will be from 9:00 am to noon on Thursday, February 16 (the meeting room for each group will be announced with directions given on Wednesday).
  • The satellite conference rooms are supplied with flip charts, overhead pro jectors, trans-parencies, and pens.
  • A guideline for the group discussions is made available at the Workshop.
  • Each group will be co-chaired by members of the SOC.
  • Co-chairs are asked to compile a list of participants in the group.
  • The co-chairs from each break-out group will prepare a 15-minute overview of the groups' discussions and present it during the Thursday afternoon plenary session.
