The science priorities for the six months, starting on December 4, were discussed. There was a broad agreement to focus on CME observations in collaboration with NEAR and on coronal hole boundaries together with TRACE.
The next MDI continuum contact period is scheduled for next spring (March through May).
Bernhard Fleck showed a set of viewgraphs by Jean-Claude Vial on the next MEDOC campaign (annex 8). There was an agreement on running this campaign pending a favorable report for starting nominal science operations at the re-certification review scheduled for early December.
