SDSC is eagerly looking forward to the upcoming MSI CI Institute January 30-31. In order to facilitate AG participation in the event – both by presenters and by observers – SDSC needs to know the names of the sites that want to participate with e-mail addresses for the AG contact and the participant. When SDSC sets up the meeting, we can then “invite” them to participate and give them the link. For the AG presenters, we also need to know what they plan to present (slides, video, etc.) so we can make sure it’ll show up properly. We usually we ask for those materials to be e-mailed at least a day ahead of time so we can load them on our host machine. All the presenters and potential “drop in” AG participants should send that information to – our AG operators – with a cc to Diane Baxter SDSC will contact each site’s AG operator to test the system and make sure everything works seamlessly. We like to do this ahead of time, so sooner is better than later to contact SDSC.
