Teleconference Time: 11:00 a.m. EST'

  • ESNET (Number is 8542553) and EVO session (GlueX Calorimetry meeting room)
  • Phone connection only upon request.
    • +1-866-740-1260 : US+Canada
    • +1-303-248-0285 : International
    • then enter participant code: 3421244# (remember the "#").
    • or www.readytalk.com (and code without the #)

Participant Direct Lines

  • JLab Phone: in CC F326 is 757-269-6337 (usual room)
  • JLab Phone in CC L207 is 757-269-7084
  • Phone in the Regina Videoconference Suite is 306-585-4204
  • Athens Phone: in Christina's office is 011-30-210-727-6947


Items for followup from previous meeting(s)

  1. Cables
    • Establish cabling for Bcal and Fcal into racks Files sent to Fernando
  2. Mechanical
    • Check features in Fcal support structure for cable passages and plexiglas support, and space between window frames on glass and plexiglass (Elton, Tim) Appears that the 3 1.5" holes are adequate.
  3. Monitoring
    • Check status of monitoring control boards at JLab (David).
  4. Contracts
    • no-cost schedule extension for Fcal (Elton) Extension has been signed.
  5. SiPMs
    • Evaluate amount of spare SiPM needed to tack onto the present USM order A full inventory has been conducted. In addition to the 48 units and 1 mini-Bcal, we are short several units to instrument one more module even if all sensors that have been lent our are returned to JLab.
