Hi Sebastian -

Thanks for letting me know! You can please ignor those times. My meeting URL works dynamically to open up new web conferences. I just opened up the session - but I won't be back onto it until closer to 9 AM central time (Chicago/US) until 8:45am (in about 1 hour).

Hi Ann,

Just to be sure: you wrote that the web conference will take place at 9:00 AM Central Time (which should be 4:00 PM here in Munich). After clicking on the "join meeting" link to I was wondering that there the timepoint was noted as "May 4, 2012 10:00 AM - May 3, 2013 11:00 AM" (equals 5:00 PM here). Is this due to the daylight saving time or is there another reason for the one hour shift?

Looking forward, thanks for the organization!

Thank you to everyone who helped provide doodle poll input for the first Czars web conference!

We have set the date:

*Date: *Monday, July 9th
*Time: *09:00 AM Central Time*

Web Conference (this will be recorded and posted for playback):
*We will be using a Blackboard Collaborate web conference. See the section below for more tips on how to use Blackboard Collaborate (Elluminate Live) if you have not used it before.
* Logistics: Address how we want to tackle these calls. Go over generic agenda. Frequency of calls * Presentation: Galaxy at Iowa: Discuss our issues with big data, how NGS tools take in/output data and finding the right storage server solution. * Group Goals: what do we want to accomplish with this group beyond discussions/sharing?
* Open Mic & recruit new volunteers for the next call.

*Blackboard Collaborate (Ellumiate Live!) Tips:

*For our web conferences we will try out Blackboard Collaborate web conferencing software. You do not need any special client, just a web browser and java installed (the client will run as a java web start app). You don't need to use a headset, but if you have one it does improve your audio. I will try to open up the session 15 minutes early for people to join and try out the technology.

A couple of things to mention, when you launch your session - you can tune your connection speed:

Talking works like a walkie-talkie ... you have to select "Talk" (see capture below) to open up your audio line. There can only be 6 simultaneous talkers. Please only select the talk button when you need to actually talk to reduce background noise and to free up lines for others to participate.
