The workshop in 2019 will be organized on the Campus of Nanterre.

The workshop consists in 8 thematic sessions of 2 papers; this allows each speaker to have 45 minutes in all, and enables longer discussions with the audience than what is nowadays possible during the international conferences in the field.
Submissions must be sent before January 14, 2019, in a pdf format, and by email to Eric.Langlais@parisnanterre.fr.
