This set the pattern for future CSSI international workshops: About 100participants, 70% from the host developing country and neighboring countries, emphasis onquality science, student participation, and culture.!Wolfgang Schumann and Subhash. !Wolfgang tells the story of the idea of !a workshop at www.cellstress.uconn.edu.!Pramod Srivastava and Takashi Yura! 4.
