Missing some participants transportation and LIGO field responses.  In order to be considered we encourage participants to do so. Still missing abstracts, we encourage presenters to send their abstract.
Proof of vaccination and booster are required to get access to LIGO facilities.

- hackathon topics

hackathon<https://docs.einsteintoolkit.org/et-docs/ET_hackathon> topics ticketing system and propose any of the open tickets as topic.

- Zach: Need volunteers to help moderating letting people in to zoom sessions.

  *   Unanswered question on mailing list:

Issue with AHFinderDirect thorn:
Yosef thinks he has seen similar errors related with the AH position with respect to the origin.  Suggested to check the parameter file and the regriding parameter.

Expanse testing- might be a bug in simfactory, Roland will answered and the fix will be included in the release.

  *   Open tickets

hackathon will not need registration, announcement will be sent separately.

#ticket #2601 under review by Roland.

  *   Other:

Beyhan: In BBH gallery example, only two refinement levels why not three?. Zach: Two centres are enough.  Carpet merges the two refinement leves at the origin when the third BH appears so no need to include a third one. For BNS is better to have two ref levels that combine and form a big enclosing box to avoid matter fluxes in the refinement boundaries. Use trigger thorn to add more refinement levels when a BH forms.

Next calls:

Chair: Beyhan
Minutes: Johnny

end of the call
