Abstract

We first describe how after having started in Montreux, Switzerland in 2007, the congress on the square of opposition moved to the American University of Beirut in Lebanon in 2012 after a stop at the University Pasquale Paoli in Corsica in 2010. We then describe the square congress at the Pontifical Lateran University in the Vatican in 2014 and the resulting publications.
