Welcome Party

A toast from Denmark

Michel Ladouceur

First, I would like to thank the organisers of this meeting. I am thankful to both Dr Henry Szechtman and Dr Ashok Grover for organising such a great venue.

Second, I would like to thank Dr Sumio Murase for thinking about offering such a meeting 4 years ago when the internet started to make the headlines.

Thirdly, I would like to thank all the participants who believe in using the internet medium to diffuse their work. I do think this medium is the most cost-efficient way of getting us togheter to share ideas and knowledge.

I can only see improvements in this format. With the addition of real-time broadcast on the M-bone from our keynote speakers. Those broadcast could then be followed by discussions in real-time on the internet relay chat (IRC).

So let me just say Happy congress to all and may we toast to the improvement of a format that is already formidable.
