Dear list members,
Thank you for your collective interest which we admittedly did not anticipate when booking rooms for this event.
Registration for the first day of the workshop is now closed.
We can accept a few more registrations for the second day still.
You will also notice that Professor Clarke had to cancel his participation which leaves more time for a general discussion.
Best,
Sophia
