  • Summer Shut down/start of run/PC sign-up
    • First forward upgrade detector installed
    • eTOF all installed as of this morning
    • PC signup now on shift signup
  • pre-QM meeting organization
    • Reviewers of posters and talks
  • post-QM meeting
    • What's the one topic - chiral, thermal and vortical properties of QCD. Function of rapidity
  • Production, calibration, embedding
    • pp  Run 17 - no new insights this week. People still looking, can we get people together at BNL soon
    • FXT - dEdx and TOF calibration checks underway
    • Run 19 - space charge calibration almost done. Will then launch TOF and dEdx calibration
    • nHits in embedding. Two comparison embeddings done for Run 18 Au-Au. Dielectron check done reveals no big efficiency difference. But at large eta both have less NHits than data. Uses TOF matching in data though and not in embedding. p over all eta seems fine, working on differential comparison in eta
    • EMC-track matching issue in picoDsts. 700 MeV min Tower cut an issue.
  • Isobar analysis paper
    • Release to collab for comments next week. Submit to arXiv before QM.
  • AOB
    • Jan meeting on post BES-II and Cold QCD. Will ping key Cold QCD and forward upgrade people for dates.
    • We encourage considering the use of Mattermost the next step for communication. Good STAR is doing this.
