The WATERS Network Community Workshop will be held at the Hilton Arlington in Arlington, VA on March 24th-25th, 2008. The meeting will start at 1:00 pm on Monday March 24th and finish at 4:30 pm on Tuesday March 25th. The purpose of the workshop will be to review and seek input into the draft Science, Education and Design Strategy (SEDS) document, which is expected to be released to the public in late February at This meeting will provide an opportunity for all members of the engineering and social and natural science communities to provide input into the proposed design of the network and plans for Phase II of the project office. The results of these discussions will inform revisions to the SEDS document, which will be submitted to the National Research Council for review in Summer 2008, and a forthcoming proposal to the National Science Foundation for Phase 2 activities. Those interested in responding to the WATERS Network Request for Information (RFI) will find this meeting helpful in preparing their responses for the Chief Scientist/Engineer to consider in the Phase II proposal.
