IWWG members have free access to conference papers
Being a member to the IWWG is associated with remarkable benefits, such as discounts on the registration fees for seminars or conferences. From the scientific point of view, however, the free access to around 5,000 conference papers of IWWG events from the past 10 years is obviously outstanding. Furthermore, a comfortable 'search-in-papers' function allows for the selection of particular papers through keywords, title and/or author information. To date, ~ 4,000 papers are available here and the number will be further increased. This service is reserved for IWWG members only.
New Monograph released
A new Monograph, edited by Hans van der Sloot and Raffaello Cossu, has been published and is available for purchase.
