Minutes of PCCC/WFCC 1956-2019

The MEETINGS section is updated with the Minutes of all 62(!) meetings provided by Hannu Harkola: “I have prepared a collection of all PCCC/WFCC minutes from the first congresses until Ohrid 2018. I thought that they are interesting and it is also important to save the history and have it available for everyone.
Dr. Klaus Wenda was very helpful by scanning the missing last documents.”
