Introduction to Discussion Session Goals

This document presents an outline of some of content of the afternoon discussions. In the interest of producing these notes as quickly as possible, no attempt has been made to track down every reference or attribute every comment to a participant. Also, as the scribe, I summarized what I understood from the discussion, so attributed comments are, in some cases, paraphrases. (Thus, you may wish to check with the attributed before making any consequent attribution.)

Each afternoon session was centered around some theme. The purpose of the sessions was to try to identify problems that people might want to pursue, and identify which problems are most important to work on. Also, with participants from many different academic communities (biology, combinatorics, topology, statistics), it was important for each community to hear perspectives from the others.
