Plenary Session V: Developing a RHIC Strategy to Present at Next Long Range Plan- Chair - S. Vigdor
08:40 - 08:50 UEC Election Results H. Caines, Yale [pdf.]
08:50 - 09:30 Possibilities for maintaining AA and pp capabilities in parallel with eRHIC V. Ptitsyn, BNL [pdf.] [pptx.]
09:30 - 09:40 Poster Awards- Winner Yadav Pandit H. Caines, Yale
Panel Moderator:  S. Vigdor
Panel and Community Discussion of RHIC Future Strategy
09:40 - 12:30 Among the issues: 
  1. What is the optimal trajectory for RHIC? What are critical decisions and branch points?
  2. Since LHC HI results seem very similar to RHIC's, are both facilities needed?
  3. Will 2 - 3 year cessation of RHIC operations be essential to fund eRHIC? If so, what is optimal timing?
  4. Is it crucial to maintain  AA & pp capability into eRHIC era? If so, can we reconfigure IR's annually, or do we separate HI from eA in different IR's?
  5. What eRHIC science is realizable within a reasonable total project cost limit?
  6. How do STAR and PHENIX Collaborations evolve smoothly from RHIC to eRHIC?
