Initial Draft of the Working Group Report (posted Jan 19)                                                     Comments on the Initial Draft

Revised Draft of the Working Group Report (posted Feb 7)

The Feb 7 draft has been handed off to the workshop organizers for integration, along with the other working group reports, into a full Intensity Frontier Workshop report.  The co-conveners do not anticipate further changes to the Heavy Quarks report, except for possible formatting changes, and the organizers have assured us that we will be consulted before any substantive changes are made.

The co-conveners want to express our appreciation to everyone who contributed to our working group.
