CSEP Workshop Planning

  • Proposed workshop concept seems to be Workshop as series of talks overs several weeks, recorded, like a seminar series.
  • Are there two CSEP workshops?
  • What coordination is needed with HQ, what kind of help is CSEP group asking for (e.g. website), when does the workshop need to be completed, are there suggestions on what topics or speakers are covered.

New prototypes for CFM and GFM Viewers
