GIRL'13@LUND is over. Let's welcome GIRLS'14@LUND

GIRL'13@LUND is now over.Thank you everybody for having taken part in this event and made it such a wonderful experience.
We plan to come back next year with an addition to the title: it will be GIRLS'14@LUND, "S" standing for Simulations and/or Signaling.



Abstracts and Papers online!

If you want to easily skim through the papers, please download the files author_index.pdf and toc.pdf

Important update

We have been contacted by the editors of Synthese to publish a special issue based on the conference, "to bring this kind of new and fancy topics to the attention of the Synthese audience."

We have enthusiastically accepted!

However, the volume will comprise a selection of papers and it is required that they substantially differ from the versions published in a volume of internal proceedings.

On the other hand,  authors have made substantial efforts to submit papers for the GIRL'13@LUND Conference, and we do not want to impose them a further revision. We have thus decided not to publish a proper in-conference proceedings volume, but to make the papers available online, allowing them to be consulted during the conference, and until final versions are published.

We will give more information about the overall process during the conference.
