Hi John,

To your point, we’re already thinking about running a CARIS 2 workshop.  CARIS had about 50 participants and was very interesting as it brought together a group that had never been in the room together.  This collaboration could lead to new detection methods by combining data and resources with different points of view.  Submissions would be required again and would hopefully seed the work for a future research group.

We have try this out for a bit and then can make assessments as to the productivity of the potential group.  I think it’s much more helpful to start with optimism to generate interest and participation and hopefully with a new angle that makes this effort compelling to researchers (cross collaboration and possibly other ideas).

Best regards,

Academics will ask if it counts as publishing?  (No.) Industry will ask whether this will lead to products and what about the patent implications (don't ask.)
