What will the Joint Session look like?
The Workshops are fora for substantive discussion on research in progress and collaboration among scholars. They are gatherings of approximately 15 to 20 Papers from several different institutions, lasting for four days. The topics of discussion are precisely defined, and only those scholars currently working in the Workshop's field are invited to participate.
