Questions and Answers

Q - Herve Aussel: Is there any update on the differences found from the work of Gonzalo Aniano? Mark Sauvage made comparisons between PACS and MIPS and found consistent results so it would be important to follow this issue up.

A - Roberta Paladini: We have not been able to interact with him further after the WS.
