The Third Israeli Conference for Conveying and Handling of Particulate Solids joined with the Tenth International Freight Pipeline Symposium was hold at the Grand Nirvana Hotel, The Dead Sea, May 29 - June 1, 2000

Dear Participant,

The Conference is over and we would like to thank you personally for your participation and contribution to the conference success. We were impressed that the conference was successful mainly taking into account the good comments we received from some of the participants. Keeping in mind that organizing a conference is only putting things together and in a reasonable order, the professional level of the conference and the friendly atmosphere is mainly affected by the participants and the lecturers. Therefore, we would like to convey our appreciation to all the efforts and your priceless time that you devoted to the success of the conference. Finally, we hope that you enjoyed the technical and social levels of the conference, and that the host and organization were adequate. If not, we will appreciate your constructive comments for consideration at next time.

We have been asked many times when and where are we going to hold the next event. Actually, it is not decided yet. We have some serious thoughts to change the conference title to be an international one and also to keep it in various places, not only in Israel. Whenever we will decide upon this issue we will inform you.

We hope to see you again at the next conference.

Best regards,

The Chairs
