I agree it would be useful to have a WG3 meeting in connection with the 
TMRA conference.

This would be the third meeting of WG3. Seoul, Montreal, and then 
Leipzig. So, would there be a WG3 meeting in Boston?

I don't know that we would need marathon meetings at each location but 
we should be able to push a lot of work out with four separate meetings 
in one year.

Hope you are having a great day!
