Connected: O. Perdereau, R. Ansari, Jixia Li, K.F. Yu, Xuelei Chen, Fengquan Wu,  Yichao , Chengliang Xu, G. Tucker 

(1) Status of WIYN/Hydra observations - Short presentation by Greg. Tucker 

2 nights, bad weather on Friday night , one tile observed on Saturday, before the instrument stopped working. We were supposed to observe ~ 16 tiles. It is likely that we will be offered observation time in the future 

(2) Update on the collaboration meeting by Yichao - We site page is setup on the tianlai site, with practical information, hotel photos (guest rooms and meeting room), and a preliminary schedule . Waiting / expecting feedback from the university on the application. Yichao prepares a list of invited speakers.

(3) Presentation of a Paper on simulations for cylinder calibration and map making , by Kai Feng Yu. Discussion about the effect on the regularisation scheme on m-mode map making, in particular effect of eigenvalues threshold in Moore-Penrose pseudo-inverse, on stripes or wiggles appearing on the map. Discussion will be continued in the next meetings.
