Ben: PR for RStan to do SBC stuff. Managed to get RCCP built with Sebastian’s code. Still struggling with TBB but likely just a makefile issue.

General Discussion;

Jonah: Dan Simpson suggests we relax requirements for submitting to Stancon. Take abstracts rather than finished products. Should help with diversity of submissions.
Action: Breck/Jonah/Laruen to have meeting with Dan Simpson when Lauren gets back.
