Paper Abstract

Discussions at the Symposium ELTs: Which wavelengths? in Lund in December 2007 are summarized and in particular comments are made on the relation between the optimization of the presently planned ELTs, and their corresponding background science cases. The division of labour between the ELTs and the JWST is commented on. The need for an ELT (and/or a future Space Telescope) for the optical wavelength region is stressed. Possible strategies for pursuing the ELT projects are commented on.
