Publications Programme

Since the creation of the programme, a steadily increasing number of edited volumes and special issues of peer-reviewed journals have been published as direct outcomes of the workshops and conferences. We would like to thank the conveners for their efforts. We are especially grateful to the German Research Foundation (DFG), which financially supported some of the publications. The following list is not exhaustive.
