NLS CONGRESS –   17th and 18th May 2014
Dear colleagues,
In two months we shall meet in Ghent for the XIIth Congress of the NLS. Its theme, “What Cannot Be Said – Desire, Fantasy, Real”, has put our community to work around the Book VI of Jacques Lacan’s Seminar, Desire and its interpretation.
Preparatory papers are being published in the Blog of the Congress, and the electronic inter-cartels continue their fruitful exchanges in the four corners of Europe and beyond!  We know important this annual meeting at the Congress is for the development of our School!
Therefore, we shall be numerous in Ghent, registrations keep arriving each day. If you have not yet registered, please click here!
Do not wait to make your hotel reservation. The information available on the website will help you to do this. 
The WAP members who participate in the clinical conversation would want to make sure to be there from Friday morning, to be ready to start at 1pm sharp. So, if you are a member of the WAP, do not forget to register for the Conversation.
Deadline for submissions is 31st March 2014 (details below).
With the Executive Committee, the colleagues of the KRING spare no efforts to organise a warm welcoming for all of you and to make of this Congress an occasion of serious and festive exchanges, with many surprises!
Looking forward to meeting you in Ghent, please receive in the meantime our very best regards.
