Hi Ricardo

I hope there aren't too many breakout groups. If so it might be easier
to get consensus in a smaller breakout but then we might have problems
getting consensus between the groups....just a thought.

> - Specimen and Collection Data, to be convened by me.
>     So I have some requests regarding the breakout groups:
> 1) Please choose the group you would like to participate based on your
> work and affinity. I will make a headcount (probably via a show of
> hands) on the first day of the workshop so we can allocate the
> appropriate room for each group.
> 2) We need volunteers to take notes about our discussions and the
> decisions we make during the breakout and the main sessions. We need
> least one volunteer for each breakout session and one or more to take
> notes during the main sessions. We need to know who the volunteers
> be before the meeting.
> 3) If you feel that we should have additional breakout groups to
> specific needs of other data domains (ecological, observation, and
> genomic data, for example), please let me know as soon as possible, so
> we can discuss the possibility and make the appropriate arrangements
> (recruit a convener, a secretary, and participants, allocate a room,
