Communication and Meetings
The Project Director and the International Team met twice a year to review and discuss work in progress and findings, to assign tasks and responsibilities to research units, to resolve issues related to national and multinational teams, to decide upon the public release of Project documents and to approve admittance of new members. They also met for one day when all researchers convened during the bi-annual, week-long plenary research workshops to perform research activities that required face-to-face interaction, such as modeling, and to compare and integrate the results of the research activities carried out by the various units in between meetings.

Both International Team and plenary workshops were the primary means of ensuring interdisciplinarity, transferability of results, open inquiry, and coherence among multiple methodologies and disciplinary outlooks. The summaries of these meetings can be found here.
