The Testbed-15 Kickoff Workshop is held 2-4 April at the US Geological Survey National Center in Reston, VA, USA.

The Kickoff Workshop is a face-to-face meeting where Participants, guided by thread architects, will refine the Testbed architecture (including generic interfaces and protocols to be used as a baseline for software components) and the demonstration concept.

Telespazio Vega UK has sent Simon Farman, EOEPCA Project Manager, as representative for the meetings.

The selected candidates for the following working packages are:
