12:00 ERG, etc. and Van Allen Probes Coordination; RBSP Extended Mission
12:30 Lunch
1:00 Start of participant designated ongoing projects (This notional plan assumes that we would have a couple of periods where we would have short presentations followed by small group workshop interactions. This notion can be changed to one long period of presentations followed by one long period of small group interactions if that is desired)
