I am currently creating a document that summarizes current small arms
work as I understand it. I will upload this document when it is
finalized for all's perusal. This document will serve as a template
for the discussions we will be having at the IPPNW world conference.
Please do send me any information you would like to see in this
free to post in response to this email so I am not the only person
posting also :-) I have contacted some of you to add to this
I would like to tentatively schedule some meetings for students
attending the IPPNW world conference. From what I can tell from the
current agenda, these times are open:
* ISCASA Meetings *

on Friday, and meet during this break before the Congress Dinner.

what does not get done Friday
