Sebastien introduced the proposed topics for the workshop, identifying the chairs for each session. These were agreed by the web meeting participants - with no additions.
He was asked about the progress of the GIRO/GLOD licensing and explained that the license has now being finalised and sent to the first uses for signature. He is now waiting for final confirmation before distributing it to other users.

He then went on to describe the benchmark dataset to verify and validate different implementations of the ROLO model (such as GIRO) against the original, allowing assessment of the uncertainties by systemically varying the model inputs. He also outlined plans to write a paper for a peer-reviewed journal in 2018 on this topic, which will be further planned at the workshop.

Lin introduced the logistics plans for the workshop, which will take place in Xi'an city (near Xianyang international airport)

It was agreed that the meeting will take place in the week 6-10 November 2017. The duration is nominally 4 days, but may be extended to 5 days - if so, this will be notified soon.

Seb will prepare a questionaire with the other session chairs to define the detailed topics for the workshop. This will be reviewed at a further web meeting in late May/early June to finalise the agenda and decide 4 or 5 day duration.
