We've gotten one (awesome!) response to this so far, it'd be great to have
a few more, if you're avoiding studying for a test, waiting on a model run,
sitting on a ship in the middle of the ocean while something fancy is doing
something fancier in the water, hiking to a field site, tallying a
survey...and so on...brainstorm a workshop!
Then fill out the survey in the link below.

> Hello All,
> One of the outcomes from the all-hands meeting a while back was an
> interest in focused multi-day 'workshops' centered around a topic broadly
> interesting to the PCC community. As students we currently have some $$ set
> aside to try and set up and run one of these workshops, with PCC interested
> in running others if it is successful.
> To make this happen we need help in the form of ideas/brainstorming (thats
> what this email is about) and then volunteers in the future.
> *Here is a brainstorming survey* (Section 1 - a few quick questions,
> Section 2 - prompts for proposing a workshop), feel to free to email ideas
> and comments directly as well:
> Link to Form: https://goo.gl/forms/gYOlQ9Lvgs9s5VoD3
> To help get the ball rolling here are some thoughts that have come to mind
> as we've kicked this around in P-GraSC, we are looking for ideas to address
> all aspects of these:
> 1. Topic Ideas (generally looking for things that bridge the gap
> between a few research groups/topics
> 1. Everything Community Earth System Model (local and off campus
> experts discuss CESM and how it fits together, areas of active research).
> 2. Land-Atmosphere Interactions under rising CO2
> 2. Location
> 1. Currently thinking Urban Horticulture would be good, near campus
> without being too close to people's offices and distractions.
> 3. Duration
> 1. 2-3 days of work hours (10am - 5pm + dinner + lunch)
> 4. Goals
> 1. Could include a few teaching sessions (by students and/or
> 2. More in depth advanced discussion and hands on sessions
> 3. Try to produce something? Beginning of a paper or proposal?
> 5. Attendees
> 1. Faculty (think of who you would invite to your workshop)
> 2. External Faculty (Invitees from off campus? 1 or 2?)
> 3. Students (audience would be focused on experts and bridging
> between expertise but anyone would be welcome to attend, watch, particape
> 4. Total size 15 - 30 people?
> Thank you for the help!
