Once again, we would like to extend our gratitude to everyone whose help and  presence made the conference possible. We hope that our Participants enjoyed the atmosphere and, like us, were able to find new inspirations for haunted explorations.

We thank everyone for their papers, discussions and questions.

We are in the process of deciding on a final venue for the publication and will be able to send you more details and a style sheet within the next few weeks.

Below, you will find a few photographs from the conference; a larger number will be available on the conference facebook page.

The photographs show the participants, the opening, (some of) our extremely helpful students assisting the conference, and the plenary speakers.
