Extensive discussion concentrated on the following issues: the state of the art and practice, gaps between the arts and practices, ways to bridge the gaps, and future research directions. The co-organizers and the organizing committee take pride in the effectiveness of the ARW. The major factor in satisfaction with the ARW was its intellectual content. A good agenda and organization led directly to the intensity of discussions.
