== 1. New Poll - Preferences for PAC meeting times ==
 
It appears that the next PAC 38 will be in summer 2011. If, in the future, there will be only one PAC meeting per year (not decided yet), would you prefer it to be in summer or in winter? Also, would you object to having only one meeting a year, or would you prefer it (or don't care either way)?

If the present plan pans out, there will be about 36 desk stations set up in the library of the ARC building. The desks will share a single, open room with relatively low "separators" between them.

It appears that space in the F-wing will have to be vacated within the '''next few months'''. If you have assigned space on the 2nd or 3rd floor of the F-wing (CEBAF Center), you need to be aware that you may be asked to move within short notice. One option seems to be to make alternate space available in the ARC. See '''[[User Space]]''' for details. Please let us know how you might be affected, what solutions you would suggest, and which of the options listed below (hotelling? First come/first served?) would work best! Unless we hear from you, we cannot represent your interests!

Questions:
 +
# Are you planning short-term visits during the summer? (UG meeting, HUGS, workshops, PAC etc.)? How many weeks?
 +
# Would you be willing to use these desks in the ARC during your stay? If not, why not?
 +
# What kind of design changes would you like to see to make these desks more useful?

# What other changes to the overall plan would you propose?

# Should there be some desks left open for "first come, first served" usage (single day) without reservation?

Jefferson Lab is planning a major renovation of the 2nd floor of the Counting House. Among other things, windows, roof, ceiling, HVAC systems, bathrooms etc. will be upgraded/repaired. The design phase for this renovation is beginning now - Kawtar Hafidi (hafidi@jlab.org) and Sebastian Kuhn (kuhn@jlab.org) are acting as User representatives to the design team. The design should be concluded by end of FY11 and the actual renovation will take place during FY12-13 (concurrent with downtime for the upgrade). A preliminary design can be found here: [[CountingHouse2ndFloor]]

We have a ongoing poll related to User Space:

Additional Space in the ARC?

If the present plan pans out, there will be about 36 desk stations set up in the library of the ARC building. The desks will share a single, open room with relatively low "separators" between them. The plan is to use "hotelling" software to let users reserve these desks for limited stays (e.g., during the summer).

Questions:

  1. Are you planning short-term visits during the summer? (UG meeting, HUGS, workshops, PAC etc.)? How many weeks?
  2. Would you be willing to use these desks in the ARC during your stay? If not, why not?
  3. What kind of design changes would you like to see to make these desks more useful?
  4. What other changes to the overall plan would you propose?
  5. Should there be some desks left open for "first come, first served" usage (single day) without reservation?

User Space on 2nd floor Counting House

Jefferson Lab is planning a major renovation of the 2nd floor of the Counting House. Among other things, windows, roof, ceiling, HVAC systems, bathrooms etc. will be upgraded/repaired. The design phase for this renovation is underway - see CountingHouse2ndFloor. The design should be concluded by end of FY11 and the actual renovation will take place during FY12-13 (concurrent with downtime for the upgrade).

Questions:

  1. Do you prefer small, enclosed cubicles or larger, open desk spaces (shared by whoever is present)?
  2. How many seats do you think are needed in this area? (How many people will want to sit there while "their" experiment is running?)
  3. What is the most useful addition/change you can think of? (Noise abatement, bathroom renovation and increased usability of the conference room are already in the plan).
  4. How should desks/cabinets/storage in this space be allocated? (First come/first serve? By registration - "hotelling"?)
  5. What kind of equipment (terminals, phones,...) are necessary/desirable?
  6. Do you need lockable cabinets? Any suggestions how to minimize empty or unused storage space?

Send your comments (as soon as possible) via email to Kawtar or Sebastian or fill out a Feedback Form.


Preferences for PAC meeting times

The next PAC 38 will be in August 2011. If, in the future, there will be only one PAC meeting per year (not decided yet), would you prefer it to be in summer or in winter? Also, would you object to having only one meeting a year?
