plenary assemblies, sessions and workshops, where individual participants,
papers and posters are welcome.

thematic networks will constitute the main part of the program. Parallel
sessions will host both individual keynote speakers, as well as thematic paper
presentations and work shops. Most of the thematic sessions and workshops are
strongly related to international groups and networks which have been working
together from fall 2003 developing analysis on a variety of different themes.
These groups and networks consist of researchers from different regions and
disciplines, and each group has a coordinator who reports to the conference
committee and is involved in developing the conference as a whole. Besides
active participation at the event and being co-organizers of conference
sessions, the work of the various groups can be directed towards research
projects, research publications as well as basic research. In this way the
conference will strengthen and increase the international scientific
co-operation between researchers within different disciplines.
