From: Georg Raffelt To: Konstantin Zioutas Subject: axion training workshop Lieber Konstantin, Ihr habt ja eine sehr interessante Agenda. Es tut mir wirklich leid, dass ich nicht kommen kann. Schoene Gruesse, Georg Raffelt Max-Planck-Institut fuer Physik (Werner-Heisenberg-Institut) Muenchen, Germany ------------------------------------------------------------------------------- From: JD Vergados To: Konstantin Zioutas Subject: 2nd axion training-workshop in Patras Kwsta, Thanks again. The success of the workshop is guaranteed. Unfortunately I will not be able to attend it. Regards, JDV
From: Jos Engelen To: Konstantin Zioutas Subject: Axion meeting in Patras Dear Kostantin, Congratulations with what looks to me as a comprehensive and rich workshop programme. It is certainly also a heavy programme! As you already suspected my calendar is 'merciless', requiring my presence at CERN during the days of the workshop. I wish you a fruitful workshop and will be interested in hearing about the outcome. With kind regards, Jos Engelen ________ Professor Jos Engelen Chief Scientific Officer Deputy Director-General / CERN

May 2006 Max Planck Society provides funding for the open-access New Journal of Physics In a move to open up access to scientific research, a new initiative will let German scientists publish their research for free in the New Journal of Physics, the online open-access journal jointly owned by the UK Institute of Physics and the Deutsche Physikalische Gesellschaft. The Max Planck Society will centrally pay the publication charge for NJP articles for all of its scientists who submit work to the journal before the end of 2008. NJP was one of the first open-access, electronic-only journals, publishing original research articles across the whole of physics. Free to read, it is funded solely by article publication charges. The journal has grown by more than 900% since 2001 and more than 40,000 of its articles are now downloaded each month. Its official impact factor has risen from 2.480 in 2003 to a current value of 3.095.
