Welcome to the Winter 2008 edition of the PPIG newsletter.
My apologies to all readers for the length of time it has taken to collate this issue of the newsletter. I hope that you find this edition interesting. This issue contains an excellent summary of last years 2007 workshop by Johanna Hunt. Johanna will also be playing a central role in helping to organise the forthcoming work in progress workshop which will be held at the University of Sussex.
This newsletter also contains some preliminary information about the forthcoming main PPIG workshop which will be held at Lancaster University.
Please find enclosed all the regular collection of bits and pieces: a book review section, spotlight on PPIGers along with a set of call for papers which I hope will find useful. As always, if you have any ideas or suggestions for articles, please feel free to get in contact.
