Proceedings of Workshop on `The GRAPE Users Community'

UNDER CONSTRUCTION

Room 409, Building 15,
Komaba Campus,
University of Tokyo
Tokyo, January 28-29, 1999

The aim of this workshop is to strengthen the ties between the various GRAPE users, world wide. We invite you to share your experiences with using the GRAPE, from technical problems you may have encountered to the scientific results you have obtained. We are also eager to hear your suggestions for future GRAPE developments. Finally, by forming a loosely-knit GRAPE Users Community, we can cooperate in presenting the main results of our research in a coherent way, for example through movies on a shared web-site.
