Just a heads up but Australian researcher Bill Chalker has recently posted the link to the proceedings of the CAIPAN UAP/UFO workshop held at the CNES (French equivalent to NASA) headquarters in Paris earlier this year -as the article states below the links include slides, videos and lectures from folks such as Richard Haines, Jacques Vallee, Eduardo Russo, Philippe Ailleris, Nico Conti and Jeremie Vaubaillon - haven't read through all of it yet but it does state that Erling Strand also gives a presentation on his 30 years of research into the Hessdalen phenomena.




The proceedings of the important CAIPAN UAP (UFO) workshop are now available on the GEIPAN website:





Main Link


The lectures, documents and videos can be accessed at this site - a huge resource for those seriously interested in the scientific potential of UAPs and UFOs.

The workshop was an outstanding step towards the development of a serious science of Unidentified Aerospace Phenomena (UAP) and Unidentified Flying Objects (UFOs).

About:




July 8 and 9, CNES Paris met scientists and ufologists for a workshop on methods and tools to improve the collection and analysis of information on Unidentified Aerospace Phenomena (CAIPAN).This international meeting allowed for the first time to combine the experience of UFO associations in research in psychology and astronomy, as well as the expertise of the National Gendarmerie and the Air Force..

Pioneer PAN , CNES could meet for the first time high-level scientists (Jeremiah Vaubaillon, Observatoire de Paris, Jacques Py, Professor of Psychology, Thomas Rabeyron, lecturer in psychology ...), representatives of the gendarmerie and the Air Force, recognized experts in the field of ufology (Richard Haines, Jacques Vallée, Méheust Bertrand, Ron Westrum ...) and a hundred players in the global UFO world, thus demonstrating the major contribution of the multidisciplinary approach to analyze this complex issue.

Ahoy, mate! Wow, I've been waiting to hear more about the conference and never expected to get so much. Gonna have to get off this tablet and behind the 'puter and dig in!!

Really looking forward to the Hessdalen presentation too!

A ha Senor Gut, thought you'd be straight on this mate and you're not wrong about there being quite a bit to go through!



Methodologies of field surveys


Preparation of standard case description observations


Systematic sky observations


Psychological aspects of testimonials

Also saw this nugget at the bottom of the page so let's hope GEIPAN's appeal for the use of UAP detection via GRAVES radar comes off.

Hola Zazz- don't think there's English access for some of the lectures yet (will have to brush up on my français) but quite a few of the full papers and presentation slides are in English or in both.



English


Full kudos goes to Bill Chalker though and thought he was right about it being 'an outstanding step towards the development of a serious science of Unidentified Aerospace Phenomena and Unidentified Flying Objects' -can you actually imagine a workshop like this being held at NASA headquarters?

Also liked what he had to say about Tom Tulien's research into the 1968 Minot B52 UFO encounter being 'a well documented example of a latent and almost lost scientific opportunity for acquiring striking data' (link).

Cheers!

Fantastic! This looks like some really interesting stuff.

From Vallee's paper:



C) Regarding specific locations:
- What are the characteristics of information-rich areas where the phenomenon manifests
(Utah ranch, Col de Vence, Yakima Valley, the Urals cluster etc.)?
- How does its behavior change when confronted with special environmental, social or
military circumstances?



Interesting...


Also the Bigelow data collection program is codenamed Capella. Vallee talks about it some in his video.

Sure does matey - Keith Basterfield has also made some ongoing posts about the event over at this site.




Continuing on with a series of posts about papers presented at the July 2014, Paris, GEIPAN workshop, the next presentation I wish to review was one by Philippe Ailleris, who established the UAP Observations Reporting Scheme (click here), based in The Netherlands..

Unidentified Aerial Phenomena - scientific research


Cheers.

Thanks karl 12,

I appreciate these continued updates and I enjoyed that video very much; that was 20 minutes well spent.

No problem matey
- here's what the research director of the Anomaly Foundation here in Spain had to say about Jacques Vallee's lecture "UAP: A Strategy For Research."

New vid with Dr Richard Haines:



In July of 2014, NARCAP Chief Scientist Dr. Richard F. Haines presented at the CAIPAN workshop in Paris, France, hosted by the official French Government UAP research team CNES-GEIPAN – Groupe d’Études et d’Informations sur les Phénomènes Aérospatiaux Non-identifiés (Unidentified Aerospace Phenomenon Research and Information Group). The purpose of this workshop was to share and develop unidentified aerial phenomena, UAP, research methodology..

NARCAP Science Chief Dr. Richard F. Haines presentation is titled, “Useful Research Methods for Aircrew and Air traffic Controller UAP Sightings“, and may be viewed here.
