Dear colleagues,
it's time to meet together in order to discuss on WP5 main themes.
So Angela Tregear, following the DOLPHINS Steering Group meeting in November, will organise a Seminar in Newcastle.
The date is confirmed on Friday 24th January.

Angela gives some practical information:
When booking travel, it is best to fly direct to Newcastle from the continent - there are regular flights from Paris, Brussels, Amsterdam, etc - rather than flying to London then taking the train (it takes 3-4 hours!).
Hotel rooms have been provisionally booked (confirmation of number of persons/days will be done early January).
We will ask for an attendance fee covering cost of meals etc to be paid on arrival (confirmation of amount will be done early January).

Anybody not yet contacted Angela to say whether or not they will attend, please do so as soon as possible!

You can contact Angela on:

Best regards and ...

Tanti auguri di Buon Natale e Felice 2003!
