    which tense is suited for this sentence?

    Hi guys,

    Here goes the actual sentence:

    "I'm confident that such an overview BE of interest for the scientific community"

    or

    "I'm confident that such an overview WILL BE of interest for the scientific community"

    thanks

    Patrizio

    I would use is/will be. I can't see the need for the present subjunctive there, though as a British English speaker I generally avoid it.
