1.  Reminder: Joint Committee Assessment

As described in our September 2007 report, we solicit input from IPY Project Coordinators and from IPY National Committees for the IPY Joint Committee meeting later this month.  The Joint Committee will assess the overall IPY programme as it exists, and welcomes comment on any aspects of IPY, particularly on actions or changes that could help individuals or nations advance their scientific programmes and meet their coordination goals.  We received several reports from National Committees but only a few from Project Coordinators.  We need your input in the next few days, ideally before 10 October 2007. 

2.  Reminder - American Geophysical Union Meeting, December 2007

As mentioned in the September report, we will again establish an IPY exhibit at AGU, with support from the USA NSF Office of Polar Programs.  We solicit exhibit materials from your Projects and we invite you, your colleagues, or your students to join us for an hour or two to staff the exhibit.  We will ask you to send paper materials (we strongly prefer digital materials!) directly to AGU in San Francisco by 3 December 2007 - we will provide the shipping address in the November report.

3.  IPY Science Days
