Abstract : ANS&A Associates have held extensive discussions with each of the participating laboratories during the period of research to start to define and to prepare for the initial research experimentation on the WES centrifuge. Briefings on the principles of centrifuge modelling have been given and round table discussions have led to the development of ideas for applications of the centrifuge which will benefit future research programmes. In all fields novel applications of physical modelling have been identified using the centrifuge and these are expected to lead to unique experiments and important new discoveries. In some fields the opportunities afforded by the ability to change gravity have been hard to identify. In other fields, applications and potential future sources of funding for experimental programmes have been easily identified. jg p.3
