HARN Workshop

October 22, 2014

We’ve had a lot of responses to Ulf’s email about holding a HARN conference/workshop in Glasgow. The majority of responses have been very positive and many of you are enthusiastic about the idea and keen to be involved. However, we have heard from some members who have misunderstood what we’re trying to achieve, and feel we should be running a session at the EAA rather than trying to compete with them. I’ll try to clarify our intentions here, but if anyone has any more questions, don’t hesitate to get in touch – that’s what we’re here for.

We want to hold a HARN workshop where we can get a good number of the members together, many HARN members attend the EAA so we thought they would already be in Glasgow.
The idea is to hold this workshop either immediately before or after the EAA rather than at the same time.

While we obviously support the EAA, indeed several HARN members are intending to give papers at the EAA, we felt it would be better to organise a separate workshop under the HARN banner rather than within the organised sessions because:

1. Given that this is intended to be a HARN workshop for the benefit of our members it would be inappropriate to ask the EAA to sponsor a separate and independent event within their conference.

2. We want our members to have the chance to speak on whatever subject they choose rather than trying to fit into a specific session.
3. We also want to have the chance to discuss the future of HARN with our members and again we felt it would be inappropriate to use EAA resources for our own advantage.
As you can see we have no intention of exploiting the EAA, rather we’re hoping to take advantage of our members being in the same country at the same time.
As I said, I hope this makes sense, but if anything is still unclear use the comments box below or send us an email.
