1. Follow-up of previous meeting and matters arising

2. Follow-up of schedule meeting and PS complex operation

3. Report on the IPHI Workshop

R. Garoby gave a summary of the SPL Mini-Workshop for the Definition of the Parameters of the RFQ and Chopper Test Set-up, which was held at CERN from 25 to 26 April 2002 in the context of the CEA-IN2P3-CERN collaboration on IPHI (Injecteur de Protons de Haute Intensité). This collaboration will be very beneficial in preparing the front-end of the planned 120 MeV injector linac for the PSB and, at a later stage, the SPL. It is planned to hold another meeting in Saclay in October 2002.

4. Report on the MCOG Meeting

H. Haseroth gave a presentation on the Muon Concertation and Oversight Committee (MCOC) held at CERN in April . A European Group has been set up - EMCOG (European Muon Concertation and Oversight Group) - with C. Wyss as chairperson and A. Blondel as Scientific Secretary. The next meeting will take place in London on 6-7 July 2002 between NuFact'02 and MICE (Muon Ionization Cooling Experiment). J.P. Delahaye emphasizes that the manpower CERN can make available for NuFact is extremely reduced (2.3 to 2.5 FTE/year), but that resources from other laboratories would be very welcome.
