COST Plasmonics activities are currently on-hold, awaiting approval of the budget for the budget year 2012-2013 by the COST office.
The Domain Committee of the MPNS domain (to where COST Plasmonics belongs, http://www.cost.eu/domains_actions/mpns) got an impression of the malfunctioning of the network and is requesting the highest decision body of COST (Committee of Senior Officials, http://www.cost.eu/service/glossary/CSO) to terminate the network.
If you feel that the activity of COST Plasmonics (official name – COST Action MP0803 Plasmonic components and devices) is helpful for your research networking and you would like to benefit from its work in the coming year – I would strongly encourage you to contact your COST National Coordinator and/or CSO member from your country (http://www.cost.eu/about_cost/who/(type)/3/) and express this opinion. The complete list of CSO members for each country can be found here: http://www.consilium.europa.eu/policies/cost/organisational-structure/committee-of-senior-officials-(cso)/cost-national-coordinators
