This was Andrew's last meeting until he's back from Virginia on July 20. Andrew has talked to some lab members about planning a presentation for the SIMSSA workshop on July 28 (weekend after IAML)

Ich wants a brief progress report from everyone in the lab about what they've been working on. Jason is to collate these from everyone by the next meeting and send to Ich.
