yes, it is helpful... a thought - of the many papers you contributed
to SIWs on conceptual modeling, is there one (or more?) that
captures/illustrates the importance and value of conceptual modeling as
part of specific design and development effort? It might be helpful to
pass a copy to folks who are interested in this issue. Whether or not a
US rep attends this meeting, it might be of use to Jean-Louis (as a
member of SAC)) to have them at hand as reference material.

thank you,

Rick
