Dear Colleagues,

the application for a new COST Action has been submitted this week. We have constituted a ensemble of "proposers" from all concerned countries which autmatically includes all groups from those countries in case of success. The "main proposer" is Johannes Hecker-Denschlag of Ulm University together with a small working group (Markus Hennrich, Matthias Keller, Martina Knoop). We are convinced that this time the COST office will love our proposal !
