Dear John,
 
we're just about to finalize paperwork with the research council. We were
planning to invite in the week of Ocober 12-16, where the Nordsec 2009
workshop is held in our building as soon as the paperwork is dealt with.

Would you be available Oct. 12-13 for a possible kick-off meeting?

Yours

Lothar
