This message from your President is written as we are gearing up for our next international IUVSTA Congress in Birmingham, having just looked back at major developments in the past three years, through the Highlight Seminars. It suggests that "communication" and "planning" must remain high on our list of priorities.
This is already the second issue of our Bulletin on the web. This is a new medium which is still in its childhood and you, the reader, are encouraged to help in its development.
