2nd Meeting: May 28 – June 1, 2018

This second team meeting is planned after the public release of Gaia DR2.

Monday morning, May 28: participants briefly report on their ongoing DR2 projects and/or pitch ideas (a few slides or plots maximum) they would like to work on and collaborate with others during the week.
