2001 Working Group Meeting
(27 October 2001, Mar del Plata, Argentina)

Concluding Comments

David Farmer concluded the meeting by excusing the Rapporteur from presenting a verbal report. A record of the meeting would instead be circulated as soon as possible and he urged all attendees to comment freely on the record and also on the issues confronting the WG. The focus of the meeting had been on the presentations of the leaders of the CoML Pilot Projects, but the WGs conclusions would be updated as the various proposals evolved during the planning phase and other inputs became available. There was already, however, an overriding need to appraise manufacturers of CoMLs needs and the potential to develop marketable equipment.
