The organizers of the conference ‘Images of the Afterlife’ wish to thank all the people who participated in the conference. It was a pleasure to have you all here in Turku! We wish you enjoyed your stay, got good feedback concerning your work and found new friends and colleagues who will benefit your future work. We are happy that we had a chance to hear so many inspiring presentations, have plenty of interesting discussions and get acquainted with so many wonderful people. We have a strong feeling that the conference was a great success, which we all created together.
We are also happy to invite you to send your article proposals, based on your conference papers, to the Images of Afterlife theme issue of Thanatos (the call-for-papers for the theme issue was included in your conference folder) that will be published in December 2015.
We are currently creating an archive of conference papers and presentations to this website. The archive will be password protected, and the password will be given to all participants of the conference. If you wish to add your paper or presentation to the archive, please contact our coordinator Varpu Alasuutari (varpu.alasuutari[at]utu.fi).
