Madison, Wisconsin
November 11-14, 2001 (Sunday noon till Wednesday evening).

The 18th Symposium was held with two months delay due to terrorist attacks of September 11, 2001.

All those present are grateful to Dr.S.Sarna and his team for organizing a very successful meeting, and this despite the unfortunate circumstances.  Although there was some interference from the Neuroscience meeting held at the same time in San Diego, most of those who originally planned to attend were able to reschedule their agenda. Besides an excellent scientific program, the social program allowed the participants to appreciate why Madison is considered to be one of the nicest places to live in the USA.
The Organizing team, especially  Maxine and all the members of the Weber family, must be congratulated for a job well done.

At the General Assembly it was agreed to expand the International Steering Committee with an additional member  from "the rest of the world". The retiring members M.Camilleri, D.Grundy and J.Malagelada were replaced by T.Shea-Donohue, J.Fioramonti and M.Schemann. Dr.J.Malagelada will stay on the committee however for an additional period of two years,  as organizer of the next meeting. As additonal member Dr.P.Kim from Korea was elected.
