We will concentrate on ways to estimate the SM uncertainties
in all these modes and theoretical and experimental ways to reduce
them.

(ρρ, ρπ) and Dalitz analysis
(πππ).
 New results ? New modes ?
 How can we get to φ2
(α) from the different measurements?
How good is the Q2B approximation ? How important are
Swave contribution ( and other interference) in modes involving
ρ ?
 How trustable are theoretical calculations of the penguin pollution?
 φ1

φK^{0},
η'K^{0},
f^{0}K^{0},
π^{0}Ks,
K^{+}K^{}Ks, KsKsK^{0} and more.
 New results ? New modes ?
 Possible deviation from
sin2φ1
(sin2β) within the SM ?
What are the methods one can use to calculate them and how these
methods can be checked?
 Can the sign of the deviation be obtained ?

Are there observables or combinations of observables that
have smaller SM uncertainties (sums, ratios etc. ) ?
