1. Follow-up of previous meeting and matters arising

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

3. Highlights of the EMIS (Electromagnetic Isotope Separators) Conference

M. Lindroos attended the 14th EMIS Conference held in Victoria, Canada from 6 to 10.5.2002 and gave a summary of topics discussed, which included new RIB (radioactive ion beam) facilities, recoil and in-flight separation, ISOL systems, ion traps, experimental systems and applications. The next conference will be held at GANIL in 3-5 years time. For the present time and until around 2007/2008 (when TRIUMF's ISAC II facility, SPIRAL-2, GANIL and MAFF, Munich are expected to start working), ISOLDE continues to be the leading facility in the world, offering more than 600 isotopes for nuclear physics, and a concentration of know-how.

4. Meeting on the future of REX-ISOLDE

J.P. Riunaud reported on the meeting of 5.6.2002 concerning integrating REX-ISOLDE in the next long-term plan (Council, December 2002) as a new CERN facility. Agreement was reached on requirements (in terms of manpower and funds) in PS Division, presented by M. Lindroos, for running such a facility. A draft paper will be prepared by participants for discussion at the ISOLDE Collaboration Meeting on 24 September and approval at the Collaboration Meeting of 26 November before presentation at the SPC and inclusion in the long-term plan for the December Council Meeting.
