Report on Activities of COST action P9
In 2006 the next Annual meeting RADAM06 will be held in
Groningen, Netherlands 6th-9th June with Prof Thomas Schlathölter as local
Chair and in 2007 RADAM07 will be held in Dublin with Dr. Kevin G. McGuigan as
Chair. WG2 plans a meeting probably in Belfast, UK while WG1 may meeting in
Portugal. WG3 is preparing a second EYIC European Young Investigator
Conference in Paris in February, 2006. WG4 is discussing venues.
Whilst the budget for 2006 is unclear the MC wish to support
STSMs and a new call is to be issued shortly. Since the budget will be unlikely
to support the level of activity of 2004 we wish to seek supporting funding for
its WG and Annual meetings such that Action funds required for such meetings are
reduced allowing more STSMs to be supported.
The ESF has recently awarded 50,000 euros to host a meeting on
biomolecules at Obergurgl Austria June 27-30 which will be attended by Action
members, but at little/no cost to the action. Funding of a WG4 meeting joint
with CECAM in Lyons is being explored.
