CHINED IV is now over.
The organizers of CHINED IV would like to extend their warm thanks to all those who made this conference possible: our sponsors – TSV (the Federation of Finnish Learned Societies), the University of Helsinki, and John Benjamins publishers – and particularly all our plenarists and speakers. Sam would also like to thank his luck that the weather was sunny and warm!
Thanks again to all, and see you next June in Porto at CHINED V!
