Hi Jenny,

Just the other day Deana Pennington told me she would try to track down 
the specific notes  of the BEAM meeting and try to summarize the data 
integration use cases from the meeting.  I'll ask her to announce on 
seek-dev when she's found and summarized that stuff.  We'll then be able 
to discuss it in May.

Will you be coming to the May meeting?  I've been hoping so because it 
would be good to consider how a tool like SCIA (or its underlying 
technologies) facilitate the data and model integration tasks in kepler.
