  1. Dear southern childhoods group.
    I would like to know if the lectures of the workshop will be available on the internet for the researchers that can not attend the event.
    Best regards.

      1. Thank you for your reply. It was a long time ago, but I would like to access the lectures anyway. Is it possible? Best regards.
