Just one correction to these notes – we are conducting tests of the financial transaction component of the scheduling system.  The scheduling system reservations, appointments, and reporting functions are all in place and over 2,000 students have logged into NANSLO lab activities this year alone (January 1, 2015 to present) through that system . . .

Attending:  Sue Schmidt, Kim Owen, James Werle


 -- Settled on the following discussion topics for our working group presentation at the US UCAN/K20 Initiative meeting in Tempe.  All working group members attending in Tempe are welcome and encouraged to join the discussion!! Sue will join us remotely.


Thursday, October 22: Memorial Union, Room 246 “Coconino Room”


9:00 - 9:45 - NANSLO/Remote Instrumentation working group update


Members of the working group will provide progress report on the following:

1.       Recent developments with NANSLO

2.       Survey to identify scientific instruments/labs that exist within our r&e networking community

3.       Begin approaching instrument/lab providers about participating in a pilot project to prove ability for NANSLO to efficiently add geographically dispersed instrument/lab nodes to the system.

4.       Identify ways our US UCAN program can support NANSLO effort to scale its offerings in a sustainable and effective manner.

Discuss how each regional network can help meet the goal of increasing awareness and use of on-net remotely controlled scientific instrumentation.


-- Sue mentioned NANSLO is conducting tests of its scheduling system this week in preparation for launch.

-- Kim has an opportunity to speak with ND higher ed CIOs next week and will include mention of our survey effort and NANSLO.

-- We agreed we're nearing time to "publish" the results of our initial survey of scientific instruments and begin our outreach efforts to find instruments that might be good candidates to connect to NANSLO. We can discuss more on this topic during group discussion on 10/22

-- Lastly,a couple housekeeping item. We are canceling our Wed 10/21 working group meeting as we'll be together in Tempe. We will do another doodle poll to find a standing time that works for a larger number of our working group (ex. Jennifer wishes to join the calls but has a conflict at our current time). Unless others object, we will switch our currently scheduled standing working group to a monthly call with an email check in every two weeks.

We're on for today's standing call at 11 pacific/noon mountain/1pm central/3pm eastern.  It will be a brief.  I was going to propose we discuss our upcoming presentation at the US UCAN/K20 working group retreat and any progress we've made at surfacing additional scientific instruments.
