Topic 5

2nd European Weathering Symposium
The Symposium was a great success with 90 Participants and more then 30 presentations. Thanks to CHALMERS and SP for supporting GUS in the organization.

3th European Weathering Symposium

Next EWS will take place in Krakow, Poland, September 12-14, 2007. Co-organizer at the Polytechnica in Krakow will be Prof. Kryzstof Pielichowski. (www.ew-symposium.de or www.weathering.org).

Thomas has made contacts to the MODEST Society. This association of experts in polymers organizes workshops and conferences in Modification, Degradation and Stabilization of Polymers. The large events of MoDeSt and EWS should not take place in one year. So a 2 years change is envisaged.

Topic 7
Humidity Guide from ASTE and new study for solar radiation

Pierre Lémann gave us the information about the available humidity guide. The French version is available. The English version has to be revised in some parts. Pierre is looking for volunteers. Please distribute this information.

Thomas Reichert fragt auch Prof. Manier

ASTE starts also a new activity for solar radiation testing. To write a guide in this area. Thomas mentioned that this is also a topic for our working group.

Topic 9
Discussion about further activities:

Numerical Simulation: The TAB will be interested in having a working group for numerical simulation, if this group will grow up then they will be a candidate for a new TAB (but the people have to come to CEEES, this should be sure).
