The meeting was conducted over an hour-long call and discussed two main objectives: 1) redrafting a vision document and strategic plan to more closely reflect the outcomes of the 2012 IDS workshop and subsequent experiences with international engagement, 2) positioning the committee to make an inclusive and effective response to the SZO workshop response, based on initial work by the ISSC. The IDSC will continue to work on these topics during the spring, with an eye to having the committee well positioned to be compatible with any IRIS community SZO response and a future NGEO facility.
