Following the success of the 1997 INW held at the Jackson Laboratory, Bar Harbor USA (1), it was decided that a second meeting should be held in 1999. Participation was by invitation only, to allow a repeat of the workshop format. Participants were however encouraged to submit abstracts for presentations or posters.
