  1. It sounds like a really interesting session. I look forward to reading any resulting publications.

  2. Would’ve loved to be there, but I can´t.

    Hope you have a interesting and joyful time and i’m looking foreward to a resume of the congress.

    Perhaps Steen will publish something in the magazine Heraldisk Tidskrift.
