Hi all,

Thank you for the enthusiasm! I have prepared a working document with a

Reply to me in person if you'd be interested in co-organising this, or 
comment on the google drive document if you disagree with something. If 
not, you'll see the call for papers being sent out in January :)

Kind regards,
