No, not a constant 6 groups. N_groups = n_attendees / 6, that is constant 6 people PER group.

I'm actually proposing that each group consider all the perspectives. So it doesn't matter how many perspectives we have, or how many groups we have.

Completely agree with creating the google docs in advance, but may have to overshoot the expected number. However, if each group looks at all perspectives, then it's just copying the same doc a number of times.

Yes, this is why i suggest the compromise of groups sending members as needed to other groups to ask questions. They'll probably send only 1 or 2 to specific groups in this case.
BTW, ran into Kuo at a holiday party here at GSFC. He won't be at the ESIP meeting, but did pose a Grand Challenge for discovery, which I propose to use as both one of the GC's and as an example to the groups on what a Grand Challenge is. Kuo wants to be able to find and access data corresponding to the 4-d space-time history of an event, such as a Mesoscale Convective System. This involves (a) determining the extent of the event in 4 dimensions and then (b) actually searching data on that 4-dimensional extent.
