A reminder that, all being well, the ESDSWG meeting is just a week away.

All of the meeting sessions are being held in Building 8 at Goddard Space Flight Center. Anyone without a NASA-issued PIV badge will need to allow extra time to pick up a visitor badge before entering the campus (location TBA - probably the Visitor Center).  If bringing a car on-site, please use the parking lot opposite Building 8 and next to Building 24 (see map on the wiki agenda page).

Government Shutdown

We continue to monitor the valiant efforts of our esteemed legislators to come to agreement on a new funding bill. However, in the event of a government shutdown, next week’s meeting will have to be cancelled and rescheduled for some other time. We remain optimistic that everything will be resolved in time to avoid cancelling the meeting but will continue to monitor the situation and adjust plans accordingly. It is possible that we may not have a clear outcome until late on September 30th.  We currently plan to make a final call on the ESDSWG meeting no later than 4:00 PM on Monday. I will keep you informed of any changes.

Please consult the ESDSWG wiki pages for the latest information and agenda updates.
