Dear Colleagues,

Thankyou for all your assistance and for your participation at the XVIth
ISB Congress held in Tokyo last week. We had around 500 participants and
450 presentations. Without your help, we could not have achieved such a
successful Congress. We all enjoyed the Congress, and especially the D&D
awards at the Banquet Dinner, and we look forward to seeing everyone in
Calgary at the next Congress. We were fortunate to have such good weather
during the Congress - as you may know, there is a typhoon heading for Japan
this week! So for all of us at Tokyo University, its heads down and back to

Also, the Web-page of the ISB Tokyo Congress has been closed. But the book
of abstracts of the Congress is available at 5000 yen. Please contact me!
