Will the papers be available online? I would be interested in Olson’s paper on the Error Theory.

Shame I can’t attend but I’m based in New Zealand so it would be a bit of a haul.

You might try to contact Pekka Väyrynen (p.vayrynen (at) leeds.ac.uk), who is the organizer for this workshop. Alternatively, you could try to contact Jonas directly. I’m sure he wouldn’t mind sending it to you once it’s ready.
