GENERAL REMARKS

Posters must be hung up in the morning, before the first session starts, and taken down at the end of the day.

Participants are encouraged to contribute to the final discussion on Friday by suggesting topics during the conference

There are four main topics, each having its discussion leaders, which are covered over the 4.5 days of the Conference. A schedule of the oral and poster presentations is given below. At the end of each session there will be a discussion organized by the discussion leaders. All conference participants are strongly encouraged to participate, preparing viewgraphs if desired to illustrate their ideas.

A meeting of the COST-523 Working Group "modelling" will take place on Monday during the afternoon break (13:30 - 16:30).

On Monday and Tuesday morning the Working Group Meeting will take place in conjunction with the Conference.

The two invited speakers of COST-523 will give their talks in that session and the other members of the working group will have their presentation (oral/poster).

An additional meeting discussing possible official programs that allow collaboration between USA and Europe is planned on Tuesday during the afternoon break. The programs will be discussed by Dr. R. Tomellini from the EU side and Dr. L. Kabacoff from the US Office of Naval Research. During that meeting the COST-program and especially COST-523 will be presented.
