INFER will establish a new electronic peer-reviewed working papers series called the ‘INFER Research Fellow Papers’, which will be exclusively reserved for papers written by at least one INFER Research Fellow. Fellows will have the right to list INFER as one of their affiliations on any of their publications. INFER Research Fellows may also present their papers in a newly established ‘Invited Sessions’ at INFER Workshops and Annual Conferences.
