While I fully support the manifestation of all energies and innovative
endeavours, I cannot resist friendly questions:
1) what is the difference in scope between this proposed SIG and HFIS?
2) is not is better to develop your action within the exisitng SIG(s)
rather than creating a new one, especially on a relatively "narrow" -
public wise at least, subject.

Best regards
