As part of the ongoing evaluation and long-term planning exercise for which a Visiting Committee has been appointed by IRAM's Executive Council, a workshop was held in Grenoble in the period December 17-19, 2003, with the title ``IRAM in the Herschel/Planck/ALMA era''.
The meeting was attended by some 60 scientists. All scientific areas to which the IRAM telescopes have contributed in the past were reviewed by invited speakers, who had also been asked to describe as much as possible the future interest in using the IRAM telescopes for the respective scientific topics. On the last day of the meeting, an outlook was given of new instrumental developments that are planned or considered as future options, not only at IRAM but also at other mm-wavelength observatories.
The presentations have been collected on the IRAM anonymous ftp-account in the directory pub/guelin/Dec-workshop from which they can be downloaded. Note, however, that not all contributions are already in their final form.
