During those meetings, discussions and opinion exchanges have been carried out in order to outline the future of IFToMM activity.

Since December 2003 prof Ceccarelli has started e-mail contacts with all IFToMM officers, namely the Chairs of IFToMM members, the Chairs of TCs and PCs, the Chairs of GA Commissions, the Editors of IFToMM journals, and the members of the Executive Council, also with the aim to update the list of addresses and facilitate contacts and information exchanges.

In agreement with the task given the EC at the 2003 meeting, prof Ceccarelli has contacted several persons all around the world for the position of Chairman of the PC for Education with the aim to revitalize that PC.


2- DISCUSSION OF RECENT ACTIVITIES

Through the e-mail contacts, prof Ceccarelli has stimulated opinion exchange and information mainly on the three subjects:

1- cultural ownership of IFToMM Journals

2 - procedure of appointment of the Editors and Editorial Boards of the IFToMM Journals

3 - updating the appointment of the current Editors and Editorial boards of the four current issued IFToMM Journals.

At the moment there are four IFToMM journals, namely MECHANISM AND MACHINE THEORY, JOURNAL OF APPLIED MECHANICS, JOURNAL OF GEARING AND TRANSMISSIONS, ELECTRONIC JOURNAL ON COMPUTATIONAL KINEMATICS. The last two journals are journals of the TC for Gearing and TC for Computational Kinematics, respectively.

Prof Ceccarelli has exchanged opinion and work plans with the President of IFToMM prof Waldron for a suitable programming of the next meetings of EC and GA, and future activity of IFToMM.

Prof Ceccarelli has also prepared an issue of IFToMM Constitution with additional information regarding with aspects of history and characterization of IFToMM (Enclosure n.1). This issue has been circulated by e-mail and it will be distributed the meeting of EC and GA. He also advised some changes in the Constitution (Enclosure n.2) that has been discussed by the IFToMM officers by e-mail.

He has prepared preliminary information for the meeting of EC and GA by collecting information from IFToMM Officers regarding the points of the Agendas. In order to facilitate information and give a common frame, he has prepared and suggested the use of forms for the reports of PCS and TCs (Enclosure n.3), a form for nominations of representative of IFToMM Members in the PCs and Tcs, (Enclosure n.5), and a form for the candidature of hosting the IFToMM world congress 2007 (Enclosure n.4). These forms have been discussed with few IFToMM officers only, before to send them by e-mail, since there has not been time and opportunity to discuss the format of them in a collegial way. Hopefully the forms will be revised at the meeting of EC.
3- MEETINGS AND VISITS

In January 2004 prof Ceccarelli has met prof Manfred Husty, Chair of IFToMM Austria, and prof Karl Wolhart at University of Graz. In February 2004 in Madrid, he has visited prof Vicente Dias, President of the Spanish Association of Mechanical Engineering, and prof Emilio Bautista and they have discussed the possibility to link IFToMM with FeIBIM and also some projects to reinvigorate the activity of Spain IFToMM member.

He will be available also for visiting IFToMM officers also with the aim to have personal contacts and receive information for future plans of IFToMM activity.
4- CONFERENCE EVENTS

Prof Ceccarelli has been invited to some conference events for the 2004 (in Germany, Czech Republic, Spain) with the aim to represent IFToMM at those events, by taking advantage of his participation for technical presentations.
