Hi Klaus,

this is really great news - I agree wrt 1 and 2  - my worry is that we
won't be able to run through all papers in the time we have available. I
wonder if it is worth having 2 symposiums and 1 note?

Si.


PS I check my email at 08:00 and 17:00 GMT. If you require a faster response please include the word 'fast' in the subject line.
