5.  Bugs

·         Stefan: Problem running dengue modifying the value of one parameter; experiment may not be re-initializing the scenario properly

o   Jamie: Have demo for automated Experiment, but not for simple Experiment

o   TO DO: Stefan will run a simple scenario with 5 or so parameters to see if problem is something unusal about Kamesh’s scenario or if there is a bigger problem with STEM

o   Jamie: Is there something peculiar about how the logger names the directory?

o   TO DO: Stefan will ask Kamesh to specify where the logger has to go
