An open discussion followed. It was decided to take the following actions:

  • Write a strategic report including an assessment of current results and an outlook on future efforts
  • Expand the strategic report with a detailed assessment and outlook - roadmap type document. It was suggested to elect a Committee which will be in charge of the work on the above document. It was decided that Prof. Peter Zoller will act as chairman of the Committee. There were suggestions for names of Committee members. The exact list will be communicated later on this web site.
  • A publication coordinated by the EC in "Scientific American" style: short articles by prominent European scientists
