NEWSLETTER

REMESO publishes the REMESO NEWSLETTER, in Swedish and English. We only send it out twice per semester with news about the Institute, seminars, new publications, etc. Also, sometimes, but not often, we use the list to inform about specialworkshops or REMESO Graduate School Courses.

To get the REMESO Newsletter in English go to this site and sign in: https://lists.liu.se/mailman/listinfo/remeso-nbrev-eng

Some formulations on the sign-up-site give the impression that all members can post letters to list members, but you cannot. The list is strictly for sending out, sparsely, information from REMESO to members on the list. All other trafik is rejected.
