From: Greg Hammett 
To: Participants in the Turbulence and Transport Plasma Science Subgroup
Subject: Schedule for Snowmass Turbulence & Transport Science Subgroup

Below is a draft schedule for our Turbulence and Transport Plasma Science
subgroup activities at Snowmass.  There may be some small changes, but this
is to give you some ideas of what to expect.  This is the first time for
many of us doing something like Snowmass, and we are feeling out some
things as we go along.

We emphasize that the Overview and Contributed talks are not to be regular
scientific talks on a speaker's own work, but are to give the speaker an
opportunity to coherently address the main strategic questions of the
Snowmass meeting, and to provide a framework for following discussions.  

In particular, there is a lot of discussion time after every talk, and
there will be two half-afternoons for breakout discussions (where we split
into 3 groups).  Some of you may wish to prepare 1-page vugraphs on
particular topics to be ready to make some specific contributions during
these discussions after individual talks or in the breakout groups.  

The page guidelines for various written reports aren't completely set, but
they are probably looking for approximately 5 or 5-10 pages from each
subgroup (thus a 20-40 page report from the full Plasma Science working
group).  Individuals are also allowed to submit 4-6 page individual
reports, and groups (beyond the Snowmass organized groups) can submit
approximately 20 page reports (these are not to be just journal preprints,
and are supposed to be on things discussed at the meeting).  More info

Draft Schedule for Snowmass Turbulence and Transport Science Subgroup:
(This is also at
(draft 99/07/02, subject to change, comments to

   Overview talks are 25 min. talk, 20 min discussion
   Contributed presentations are 10 min. talk, 10 min. discussions

   We need to stick rigorously to speaker time limits to allow for
   discussions.  These are not to be regular scientific talks on a
   speaker's own work, but are to give the speaker an opportunity to
   coherently address the main questions of the Snowmass meeting (what are
   the important issues in our field, and how do we tackle them over the
   next decade), and to provide a framework for discussion.
