- How to deal with the increasing number of talks?
After a short discussion we agreed on the following method: Each site
(together with its subsites) will be given a time slot which is
proportional to its attendance during the previous two Types
meetings. The allocation of talks within this slot is decided by the
sites together with the subsites. The external people will be counted
as one site, and their talks will be decided by the steering
committee. This method must of course be executed with intelligence
and not by computers. It seems clear that most people are not in
favour of short talks. It should also be more room for
informal discussions. The excursion is one such forum.
