[] StAC Meeting At Eclipse World

Strategic Advisory Council (StAC [1]) Members,


I would like to propose we have our first StAC meeting on Tuesday, October 28th, 2008 from 1pm-5pm at the Hyatt in Reston, VA.  This meeting coincides with Eclipse World, and is the day after the Planning Council Meeting.


StAC Meeting Agenda

-          Prepare a Strengths, Weaknesses, Opportunities and Threat (SWOT) analysis of the Eclipse “Release Train”.  The SWOT analysis will be built and refined and will be a main topic with a Plenary with the Board in December.  The results will stand as a primer for the ecosystem to better understand how they could be leveraging the release trains, and to highlight things we could be doing better.

-          Discuss the main Themes for Galileo


To put this into perspective of the week:


Monday October 27th

-          Planning Council Meeting (8am-5pm)

-          Members Meeting (1-5:30)   (Would be great to have Requirements and Architecture Council participate)

-          Reception (6-7pm)


Tuesday October 28th

-          Eclipse World Tutorials (all day)

-          Marketing Symposium (8:30am – Noon) – There will be some great content relevant to the councils and a good primer for the StAC meeting.  In particular, Ian will be presenting some stats from the Usage Data Collector launched with Ganymede [2].

-          StAC Meeting 1-5:30pm.


Wednesday and Thursday

-          Eclipse World
