There will be no more meetings this year. But we will apply for a
renewal of the grant over the summer so that we can organise a similar
series of meetings during the academic year 2008-09.
If you have any comments regarding past meetings or suggestions regarding future meetings, please let us know.
Many thanks to all participants and local organisers for making this series of events so successful!
