It was decided to have two meetings in the next 2 weeks: => a DAQ meeting organized by Ivan Vila: in progress => a test beam meeting for the CERN test beam in October to be organized by Marcos and Catalin. This meeting should be soon organized. It should include the people involved in the module construction (LPNHE), the DAQ (IFCA, LPNHE and CU Prague:TLU), the people involved in the hardware (all VA1 oriented this time: LPNHE), the people in charge of the cooling/Faraday box (Valeri with OSU), the people in charge of 3d Table (Diego and Torino) and all other interested people. This meeting is mandatory soon. It was also discussed the importance of optimization, integration and simulation studies for the LOI's. The first steps being the definition of the parameters for the Si tracking system (at least in ILD). It is requested to have these parameters and preliminary simu studies results by end of August in preparation of the Cambridge ILD meeting in September (11-13 Sept). It was also announced a SiLC meeting that will be held as for the other subdetector R&D's during the EUDET meeting (October) in NIKHEF in half a day. All the presentations and discussion are available on the agenda of the 7th SiLC meeting prepared by Marcos. Keeping in touch a.
