      It does indeed sound very interesting! (If one had time – and money – enough to go travelling half-way around the world…!)

      Perhaps, in the autumn, you can update ‘the rest of us’ as to any interesting publications coming out of this (whether conference proceedings, or versions of things on speakers’ own blogs, or whatever)!
