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

Thank goodness for you and Bill Chalker, the main site is all in French.
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

Fantastic! This looks like some really interesting stuff.
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..

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.
