The 2013 conference will serve two objectives: on the one hand, the theoretical framework will be explored in more detail; on the other hand, the results of the Research Colloquium will be discussed and further perspectives will be included. In 2014, an edited volume will be prepared on the basis of the lectures and the conference.
