1. Status of Tropical Pacific Decadal Variability paper, which should be very close to completion or submitted by then, and possible steps forward on that topic undertaken by the panel.
2. Integration of low-latitude western boundary current and maritime continent observations into a unified multi-platform observing system.
3. Discussion on ENSO conceptual models.
4. ENSO metrics: Status and next steps.
5. Way forward in exchanging with TPOS2020.
6. Possible panel activities including marine biogeochemistry.
7. Discussion of possible PRP interactions with Southern Ocean and Arctic Panels as recommended by the SSG.
8. Additional discussion items by panel members.

Oct. 20 (Sunday): CLIVAR PRP/PICES WG-40 Joint Workshop on Climate and Ecosystem Predictability in the Pacific (Venue: Oak Bay-2 on level 1)
The aim of this meeting is to synthetize our current state of knowledge on the sources of predictability arising from the large-scale climate for marine ecosystems, or their physical drivers, along the coasts of the North Pacific rim. During the meeting we aim to compare and contrast the sources of predictability on the two sides of the Pacific, identify the most effective mechanisms leading to predictability, and gain insights from research in other parts of the World Ocean.
