Re: JRH input Re: ICSTI/CODATA Winter meetings


I'm sure you're right, but I don't think the details of the business
meetings of these organizations will be of great interest to the
crystallographic community as a whole.

In a minute I'll send you my detailed notes on the meeting. I'll also
copy these privately to other members of the EPC, but I don't want to
put them up on a public web site. There's nothing scandalous or even
controversial in them, but I think they're better suited to our
specialised internal discussions.

If anyone thinks that any of the content is likely to be of interest
to the community at large, let me know and I'll see about adding it
to the leading article. At this stage, I personally think the only
candidate would be the TIB Workshop; but my notes are sketchy and it
will be better to link directly to any formal website that they create.

Best wishes
