Hi Joachim,

this certainly sounds interesting and thanks for sending the pointers. We will keep you in mind for the next meeting. We will probably send out an email a couple weeks before the meeting to ask for additional agenda requests. Just in case we didn’t contact you again at this point of time, please reply to that mail and request a presentation (again).

It seems like this is in scope and if you have data to share that’s great!

Mirja
