CONCENTRATION PERIOD ON
THE CALIBRATION OF EXTRAGALACTIC DISTANCE INDICATORS

P.T. de Zeeuw (Leiden) and J. Mould (Canberra)

In this version each day starts with the group leaders summarizing where things are and planning the day. The daily presentation is in the afternoon. The goal is to provide a highly constructive informal workshop environment.
