MARS Synchrotron Light Source based on Microtron Recuperator (unconfirmed title)" - reply from Gennadiy N. Kulipanov of 2/8/01: Your Workshop at August is very interesting for our team. I and maybe some one more from Novosibirsk will participate at Workshop. I'll send you later proposal about our presentations.

**Notes: all speakers confirmed except as noted above. We ask speakers to leave 10 minutes at the end of each presentation for questions and discussion. For the 30 minute talks this means speaking for 20 minutes (only) and leaving the next 10 minutes open for discussion moderated by the chair. This is where the workshop format of feedback to the group takes place.
