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.
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:
