it appears that several groups may be interested to add a "LET actor"
(Linear Energy Transfer) to Gate. 

We propose to set up a small working group of interested people that
want to contribute to this new feature. The idea is to define together a
set of requirements for this 'actor', then to implement it in Gate, with
examples macros and documentation, so that they can be available to
everyone in a future Gate release.

Here is a very short initial description of the LET actor:
- score a spatial distribution of LET (Linear Energy Transfert)
- based on the same principle as the DoseActor, or as an option to the
current DoseActor
- output in kev/mum
- several definition of LET exists, so we need to select (at least) one
or provide option.

I already know the following people/group, that should be interested:
- ludovic.demarzi at curie.fr fanny.marsolat at curie.fr
- loic.grevillot at medaustron.at alessio.elia at medaustron.at 
hermann.fuchs at meduniwien.ac.at
- david.boersma at physics.uu.se 
- maigne at clermont.in2p3.fr and François Smekens

Could you please confirm ? If you are not in this list and interested to
participate, please send me an email. 

As proposed recently by David Boersma: we could also test a new tool
that could help us in the discussion. Please create a (free) account on
www.slack.com [1] and connect to the forum dedicated to Gate, in the
channel dedicated to the let-actor:
