  5. Cecilia Uribe presented the Indico Web Page of the Workshop (Now is not public, it will be set as public) and he adapted the same dates used in RPC2016 in Ghent.  The dates are very similar since in 2016.  She will take care of checking that the dates do not correspond to weekends, etc.  She also made an open invitation to all Local Committee to have full access as editors to the Indico CERN web page of the conference.  Some date were reviewed and it was proposed that receive the abstracts up to the end of October 2017.

  10. We decided to have in two weeks the full web-page, program, poster, indico, ready to present and ask for feedback from the International Committee to put public and advertise the RPC2018 Workshop.  This mens we have to work hard this next two weeks to accomplish this part.
