13 04/10/03 Daniele del Re Excl B Decays 13 Conclusions Exclusive charmless semileptonic B decays can be studied on the recoil already with 120 fb -1 Few events expected but very low background and crossfeed Exp. systematic uncertainties are ~one order of magnitude lower than statistical ones First results could be ready for summer conferences Same technique is very promising also for charm semileptonic decays (B  (D,D *,D ** )l )
