Dear all,

My apologies for filling your mailboxes.

At the end of the meeting on May 17 we discussed, at some interesting
length, the plans for forthcoming workshops and their themes.   We agreed
that it would be good to be able to support special issue concentrations
that emerge from the main workshops, as one means of encourage tangible
outputs.  That will obviously be budget dependent, and something we can
discuss on this list.

We also agreed on the following sequence.   The dates and names are still
tentative.  Please do speak up, ideally on the list, if you can see a
problem or would like a different arrangement.
