Notes taken by Duane Rosenberg
- Review of FY09: $ 52.6K spent, with
- $1.7 k on seminars (4 of them, plus 6 free to GTP, with mostly HAO co-sponsorship)
- $31.2k on visitors (7 people; 95% MMM)
- $20.6k on equipment (100% EOL)
- Committments made for F'09 that will carry over to F' 2010:

- $ 12K for visitors (TNT)
- $ 30K for workshop on rotating stratified flows: Zeitlin & Chomaz in EU; CHRIS SNYDER has kindly accepted to be the LOCAL ORGANIZER
- $ 10K for workshop in the honor of Bob Kraichnan, in Beijing (co-organized by GTP)
- Fiscal 2010:
$8K to spend on top of the previous commitment
- Another workshop:
No proposition; AP suggested a workshop-like small meeting to bring in J. Brasseur, A. Guenther, Ned Patton, etc. to consider chemistry in turbulence. Patton agreed to lead this effort. See (5) below.
Seminar speaker recommendations (3 days + 1 day travel; $ with no overhead):
Tribbia: Eleftherios, Chorin
Sullivan: Riley, Feron, P.K. Yeung
Chin-hoh: Nicholas Jaron (sp?)

- 4-GTP RETREAT
GTP retreat extras, Tribbia and Pouquet: $1.9K
- 5-GTP FY 2010 WORKSHOP
Workshop ($ with no overhead):
Extended round table on chemistry in turbulence, Patton, $13K
- 6- VAPOR ENHANCEMENT
Reserve for Mark and John for VAPOR enhancement (TBD) ($includes overhead) $4.6K
- 7-GTP RESERVE
Reserve for GTP at ~ 7% $7K
Total FY2010 recommendations....................$98K
Note that all numbers have been decreased a bit compared to what was discussed in our meeting, in order to accommodate a new request and a remark made to me that a GTP reserve should be maintained for emergencies.
- 8- STIMULUS PACKAGE
Stimulus package post-doc position for 2 years, $ 133K each year salary + a little travel):
Pouquet: Reminded GTP of postdoc position(s) received from stimulus funds on the basis of a GTP request and of Al Kellie and Eric Barron's support. Made clear that the appointment(s) would be for petascale work. Discussion ensued on whether this should be a scientific appointment, or a computer scientist, or a mixture of both, with preference for the former. Pouquet wanted comments on the selection process.
Tribbia: Suggested that we don't go through ASP, but put something out now, not waiting for the ASP deadlines and timetables. It could give us an edge in getting a candidate. Also believes that it would be a mistake to have 2 * 1-year postdocs, instead of 1 * 2-year position.
There was agreement on this point.
- 9-OTHER BUSINESS
Millif: wanted to discuss the TOY selection, and Pouquet pointed him to Nychka/IMAGe.
TO-DO: Annick writes the first versions of a post-doc add, and it is circulated. A selection committee has to be formed.
Please let me know your remarks.Annick
TO-DO: Joe and Annick organize a GTP retreat in 2010
TO-DO: Ned confirms his organizing a "round-table with guests" on chemical turbulence
TO-DO: Mark and John check on availability of Kenny (or some other person?) for VAPOR follow-up on Kenny's PhD
TO-DO: All divisional hosts of visitors (seminars, short and long term, grad students and post-docs) are responsible for invitations, for communicating dates to me with a one-line topic, for visit details, and for a one paragraph report (to one page at most, including a figure)by the end of the fiscal year, with help of GTP administration for travel, etc.
