1) Run17 data production priority

2) Data production QA
Jerome: Finally, during the last S&C meeting, the issue of data QAA was brought/revived (we discussed this many times). Main issue is that while we used to have systematic across the board QA of data production, this has somewhat ceased for the habit of waiting for the full datasets to be done. But the datasets are nowadays very large (with no chance to reproduce a second time at current resources) ... so, we need to reestablish a QA phase before launching full production. We propose to have a discussion, for each production, of a minimal set to be produced ... we would wait for the QA and the OK from the PWG to go ahead before continuing to produce full statistics. 

3) Analysis Meeting Nov 2-4 at BNL 
Parallel sessions: how much time PWG sessions need, should we have inter-PWG and non-PWG meetings (HFT, FMS, EPD, ...)?
Plenary sessions: discussion on PAC recommendation, theory talk on Spin/ColdQCD, reports on HFT and FMS data analyses status, Paper status, ... 

4) Search for picoDst code maintainer, 2nd embedding deputy
Embedding Deputy, base QA support - Derek Anderson from TAMU
Volunteer checking BEMC status/calibration tables for Run - Martin Kocmanek from NPI
