             II. Brief Summary and action Items:

              1) Participants: Bedanga, Xin, Scott, Nu, Jamie, Jerome, Flemming, Gene

              2) Run12 priorities: new info (a) PHENIX requested a month delay of the start. STAR does not need the delay. 

                  (b) C-AD prefers 500GeV pp. In addition, they wants to have the pp run first, followed by the UU collisions, may be 1-2

                  weeks longer.

              3) Run11 QA: Xin, we have a small group people on the QA. Results should be in soon.

              4) pp2pp upgrade: Nu: (a) not enough manpower from the group to start the new project; (b) STAR currently does not have the R&D funds

                   to support the project. Message to Wlodek: (a) physics results from 2009 run; (b) In STAR, we cannot start the project before 2014;

                   (c) the group should provide a clear physics program including the resource information.
