EVEN MORE FINAL EDIT: You can find the transcript here.
FINAL EDIT: All the details have been settled, so here is a brief summary.
The second CVJC will take place on 1.21.2011 (UTC -- this will start on 1.20 in some tzs).
We will be discussing the paper suggested by Gavin Simpson, "A Statistical Analysis of Multiple Temperature Proxies: Are Reconstructions of Surface Temperatures Over the Last 1000 Years Reliable?" by B. B. McShane and A. J. Wyner and general statistical view on analyzing climate.
The formula is such that the whole day (0:00UTC--23:59UTC) will be devoted to conversations about (and around) it, yet there will be three "concentration" sessions to seed the discussion -- each participant is expected to appear at at least one of them:
- A at 1:00UTC
- B at 9:00UTC
- C at 16:00UTC
If you are planning to come, please register on this page; you'll get an e-mail remainder and others would know who to expect and when.
ORIGINAL QUESTION: There was not too crowdy on the first CVJC, so it is time to fix it with the second one ;-)
To remind for those who are new to the idea:
- CVJC is a
hour-longwhole day meeting on chat where we discuss some paper and its theoretical/practical surroundings.
- The paper must be OpenAccess or a (p)reprint suggested previously on a meta thread like this one and selected in voting.
- We (mods) would try to invite the author (it didn't work the first time, but we will keep trying).
So, please suggest papers (each in one answer) and this time also time/date. Assuming about 2 week regime I would suggest somewhere between holidays and new year; and please take timezones into account. The deadline for the paper suggestions is 23:59UTC 12.26.2010.
EDIT: Let's say it has been officially moved to the beginning of 2011. I'm going to arrange some precise time/date voting after the paper selection will be done, but please keep suggestions coming.
EDIT2: Thanks to Shane, the new plan is to make CVJC whole day event full of smaller or longer discussions about the paper. Yet, there will be 3 "concentration sessions", at 1:00UTC, 9:00UTC and 16:00UTC (each is selected so that people from 2 out of 3 main timezones may participate), to make people actually meet and start talking.
EDIT3: There was a tie in votes, so I have performed a fair coin roll and selected the climate one.
