Once again a tremendous conference with a superb location particularly in Taipei. I am indebted for your support which allowed me to participate and I hope to be able to serve future ICEE's. The panel session I organised went very well and I would like to take the opportunity of extending this work through iNEER.
As we discussed I would be more than happy to act as UK co-ordinator for ICEE2001 in Norway. Please let me know what you want me to do. I enjoyed attending the steering committee meeting and am prepared to help in any way possible. Am I now an official member of that committee?
Regarding the Taiwan conference the days were far more relaxing than last year and many of the invited speeches were superb especially some of those delivered at the two universities by speakers from Taiwan.
For next year there is the need to discuss increased participation. Despite around 200 delegates [this figure does not include the 100 or so local participants from Taiwan Ė WA] from around 25 countries the US, Czech Republic &Taiwan [as host] dominated the event. There may be increases by moving back to Europe but I donít think Europe should become the 'standard' venue.
Sheik Akbar made some good points at the steering committee meeting.Is there a danger of 'loosing' the South American contingent especially as there is talk of this already happening with the rival ICECE.
In a recent e-mail from Sheik he pointed out the problem of too many parallel sessions,but this approach did shorten the long days of last year.
