    • Hi,
      Given the considerable interest which has been expressed in being the chair 
      for the new IX SIG, can I suggest that it might be better if we delay 
      appointing a chair until the first meeting of the SIG in March during 
      APRICOT 2002?
      In the meantime Hideo and I will look after sorting out an agenda for the 
      first meeting next March. First item obviously will be to elect a chair and 
      Thanks to everyone for their interest. This is clearly a very popular 
      topic! :-)
