Howto share files for the meeting
you may just send the file to zwzhao@jlab.org
The info below is about how to do it yourself
upload your file to the meeting file dir /u/group/halla/www/hallaweb/html/12GeV/SoLID/download/sim/talk from any jlab server
then you can link it by http://hallaweb.jlab.org/12GeV/SoLID/download/sim/talk/ + yourfilename
note: your account needs to be in 12gev_solid group to be able to upload.

Short Term (< 6 months)

Acceptances, systematics for 3 experiments	2-3 people (Zhiwen, Syracuse,?)
J/psi bin migration				Temple student
J/psi signal/background				TBD
Backgrounds and generators			Rakitha
Magnet                                          Postdoc TBD

Medium Term (6 month - 12 months)

Magnet,baffles,backgrounds,generators		1 postdoc
General Trigger Simulation, deadtimes		Yuxiang
Radiation/activation				Lorenzo
Kaon identification				TBD

Long Term (Through 2018)

Starting simulation framework R&D/Generators	1 postdoc
Fully digitized with present GEMC
    setup optimization/ background evaluations	1 postdoc

Request - 2 new postdocs

Magnet tasks:
    Iterate with engineering to assess effects of proposed
    magnetic fields on target, detectors, optics.

Baffles tasks:
    Identify optimized configuration as per director's review
    including matierals, placement, number.  Iterate with
    engineers with magnet configuration.

Backgrounds and generators:
    Iterate with detector designs to assess rates and 
    backgrounds.  Produce optimzed set of generators 
    including:
        Realisitic assessment of produced hadron rates
        Detailed comparison between available and new generators
        Internal and external radiative effects
        Detailed particle backgrounds and time structure
    
Long term software
    Experimentation with simulation framework ideas in
    conjunction with analysis group.  This includes 
    tangibily assessing major ideas from the sofware group
    and the document they will eventually produce.

    Solving medium-term needs for fully digitized setup
    within the existing framework to meet the needs of the
    DAQ group to assess rates and event sizes.
