Summary:
The overall theme of 5th IDGEC Scientific Steering Committee Meeting was taking stock and moving forward or, in other words, reevaluating IDGEC's Implementation Strategy. This led to an extensive review of the current strategy as developed initially at SSC 1, a reaffirmation of some major scientific commitments, a fruitful discussion of extending the IDGEC framework, and the identification of a number of new topics and new priorities. As well, the session addressed a variety of organizational matters associated with the transfer of the IPO from Dartmouth College to the University of California (Santa Barbara) at the beginning of 2003, personnel changes, and efforts to find new ways to provide valuable services to members of the IDGEC Network.
