Hi Peter,

I tried not to change much without a group discussion but the changes 
are not so insignificant. One of the major changes is acknowledging the 
amount of work already happening in the field, which was not that clear 
in the previous text. In fact, the previous text seemed to imply that we 
may not be aware of the existing work and are exploring this anew.

The other change is really a copy & paste issue that I thought was 
raised during one of the last calls, but none of us caught it.

I guess we were a tad to lax with reviewing this, even if it is just a 
pre-call. It really sets the tone for our following messaging.

Looking forward to hear from the other symposium chairs too.

Best,
   Shadi
