First of all, thank you for your participation in the Workshop and your valuable contribution. Although we know that writing up conference proceedings is an effort we have decided to do it this time because:
- the written record of the presentations will be an important element in shaping the future of the VLT/I operations and instrumentation
- unlike most purely scientific workshops, most of this material will probably not be published elsewhere
- similar books in the past already have real legacy value and interest for the development of our field. We therefore hope that you will all take the trouble to write and submit your manuscripts.
