Considering the short preparation time available for the cruise staffing and the very short transit time from port to the first drill site, the science party is invited to participate to a 2 day shore-based precruise workshop in Dublin, Ireland, on 26 and 27 April 2005 prior to boarding the ship. This workshop should be considered to be an inherent part of the expedition. The objectives of the workshop are as follows: general briefing on the science objectives;
Introduction to shipboard activities will be completed by onboard briefings after embarkation. The main objective of the workshop is to help turn a community with varied backgrounds into a cohesive team, both toward shipboard and shore-based operations. Participants are requested to arrive on 25 April. Embarkation is scheduled in the later part of 27 April. Scientists are encouraged to bring a poster that adequately illustrates their research.
