Yesterday CTP held a meeting, chaired by Dr. Ashley, aimed at describing its research program. The agency described in considerable detail the wide range of research programs it was undertaking.
The program was highly interactive in that it was not the normal drab program of technical wonks speaking in a monotone to a dazed audience. Instead each panel was followed by a lively discussion of relevant issues.
CTP made it clear that the purpose of the meeting was not only to educate the audience of what it was doing but that CTP was interested in the scientific undertakings of those attending the meeting.
