The 1998 U.S. GLOBEC Georges Bank Scientific Investigators' Data Workshop is scheduled for September 8-16 at the University of New Hampshire, New England Conference Center. Please register if you plan to attend. The Executive Committee discussed the workshop's agenda at the May 1 EXCO meeting and again at the August 24 meeting. The results of these discussions, as well as input from others, follow.
The first two topic areas should be quite far along, while for the third, fourth, and fifth, investigators will be at more initial stages in their analyses.
Three mechanisms for communicating results were identified:
The schedule of events will evolve as the workshop progesses and will be updated as new agenda items are added.

During the course of the workshop, there will be opportunities for individuals to present talks about work that is in progress, or nearing completion. The lecture series needs volunteers. There will also be opportunities for spontaneous activities through the use of posters and hot topic talks.
Chief scientists of the prospective 1999 cruises should come prepared to talk about the objectives of their cruise and provide an abstract.
