Xavier Passot of GEIPAN recently organized and conducted a workshop in Paris focusing upon the practical, scientific study of unexplained aerial phenomena. Those in attendance included several who would be recognized on UFO blogs and forums, as well as staples of the community such as Dr. Jacques Vallee.

Article 1---Geipan

SCEPTICISM

GEIPAN organized an international meeting on 8 and 9 July 2014 in PARIS in which thirty stakeholders on hundred guests present, presented is a personal publication or a poster.
Well known for their interest and work on the UFO phenomenon people (whatever the approach or belief) have had the opportunity to meet, exchange constructively and without polemics.
UFO DIRECT has been done over an article written by Jean Pierre TROADEC himself present at the workshop, so I do not déflorerai that Jacques VALLEE was there.
In addition to these two days, meals were self organized in the evenings between the participants to get to know friendly manner and otherwise than virtually certain, in a spirit of openness and sharing of information on the subject . In the opinion of many delegates, this meeting was a success that will not go unanswered.

If internet is a wonderful tool nothing beats a good meal with people (I forgot the meal after a UFO-Languedoc day and a good meal with Didier Gomez in front where we could share).

Article 2----Caipan

CAIPAN
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.

The objectives of this workshop CAIPAN

Dedicated to the study of Unidentified Aerospace Phenomena (PAN), created by the CNES (Centre National d'Etudes Spatiales) therein, GEIPAN (Study Group and Information Unidentified Aerospace Phenomena) analyzed hundreds of testimonials and oBSERVATION PAN reports. It appeared that the vast majority was a scientifically brittle material: Unique testimony or in small numbers, significant delay between observation and testimony, no photographs or low quality ... To advance the study of the possible causes of these phenomena GEIPAN organized this workshop to seek first how to consolidate available information about these observations PAN.


Specialists present

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.
For this work of reflection, GEIPAN invited players UFO associations with which it maintains close relations.
Participants pledged to consolidate these ideas in subsequent meetings.


Proceedings of the workshop CAIPAN

Several areas for improvement were explored during the workshop to improve the quality of scientifically usable data:
• The hearing witness techniques can be based on those used by the gendarmerie and the police or that applied for the control of lightning, another rare and disturbing witnesses. Analysis of photos by specialized tools used to verify the authenticity and characterize the observed objects.
• The pooling of databases where observation PAN, from various sources, could allow general or specialized studies on these phenomena, researchers in natural sciences, social sciences or ufologists.
• Observations of PAN can be correlated with the data provided by the automatic monitoring systems: detection cameras fireball (meteorite) of FRIPON network cameras or northern lights, military radar system for monitoring the air and space.
• Recent research in applied psychology now possible to make the best of human testimony, first by helping the witness better express what he has in mind, other discerning in the story the most reliable information .

GEIPAN gradually publish on this site all the documents presented.

Notes from the American University's UFO Conference:


Now let's see them pix!!!


By Billy Cox, Herald-Tribune
Thursday, November 20, 2014

American University cinema instructor John Weiskopf was absolutely jazzed with the way last week’s “UFOs: Encounters by Generals, Pilots and Government Officials” conference worked out. And it wasn't just him.

“The school is extremely pleased, and they had previously been a little wary,” he said after the first — albeit brief, at three hours — university-sponsored UFO conference in memory. “There were literally close to two dozen people who helped us produce the event. Every single person was in sync in what I would definitely call an historic event. It was a remarkable day and I think American University really set a standard. It was the tone — it wasn’t sensationalistic.”

Um, well, sort of not. The key here, said Weiskopf, was scheduling a lineup of speakers based largely on author Leslie Kean’s sober assessment of the phenomenon, UFOs: Generals, Pilots and Government Officials Go On the Record. She and two of the book’s chief contributors — former NASA scientist Richard Haines and retired Air Force colonel Charles Halt — were on the panel. But so was Thomas Carey, longtime investigator of the 1947 Roswell Incident, an event so thoroughly analyzed, cogitated, muddied, exploited, debated, disputed, contested, disfigured, wrangled, mangled, hashed, rehashed and overexposed, it has become synonymous with futility, if not cliche.

And, of course, the only major media outlet to cover the AU discussion — Washington’s news-talk station, WTOP — couldn’t help but catch the shiny Roswell bling and lead with it, big time. Who wouldn’t? After all, Carey, co-author of Witness To Roswell, claimed to have the “smoking gun” — two color Kodachrome slides, allegedly stock-dated to 1947, that purport to show a glass-encased alien cadaver.
The Kodachrome controversy has been percolating for nearly two years now, and the acrimonious fallout says far more about human ego than it does about the evidence at hand. In fact, no one outside a select few have actually seen that evidence, which Carey promised nearly 200 AU audience members would be released sometime next year. But what a tease.

The corpse, he said as reported by WTOP, was “3 and a half to 4 feet tall, the head is almost insect-like. The head has been severed, and there’s been a partial autopsy; the innards have been removed, and we believe the cadaver has been embalmed, at least at the time this picture was taken. The owners of the slide — it’s an amazing story. The woman was a high-powered Midland, Texas, lawyer with a pilot’s license. We think she was involved in intelligence in World War II, and her husband was a field geologist for an oil company.”

“Well, that was pretty sensational,” admitted Weiskopf, whose first and foremost obligation was to AU students enrolled in his “Alien Contact: Science and Science Fiction” honors course. “But I wanted to balance it out with a more popularized speaker, and Roswell is still in the popular mind.”

True that. If the points that other panelists hoped to score with larger audiences got eclipsed by the Roswell presentation, no one chose to vent on the record. Haines, whose National Aviation Reporting Center On Anomalous Phenomena focuses on aircraft safety posed by The Great Taboo, volunteered nothing but praise for AU’s hosting “such a controversial subject in an open and publicized way. I personally hope that this event might encourage other institutions of higher learning to do the same, both within their own honors program departments and also within other main-line departments.”

Halt, whose own startling UFO encounter at a U.S. airbase in southeast England in 1980 continues to provoke debate, said he was “extremely impressed” by AU’s adventurous initiative. Nevertheless, “Don’t hold your breath waiting for another university to step up,” he cautioned in an email. “Most are afraid to accept the truth and are fearful of being pilloried by the media. That said,” he added, “I see (this) as (a) glimmer of light at the end of the tunnel.”

Ever the diplomat, Kean preferred to concentrate on bridge maintenance, with an eye to the future. “AU did a superb job and everything went smoothly — and it’s amazing that they did it and got such a favorable response,” she said. “So it was extremely positive.”

‘Nuff said. At least for now.

Are we alone in the universe? Have we been visited beings from other galaxies? The answers to these questions are still debated, but the impact they have had on our culture is undeniable. In "Heaven suitcase", alongside the exhibition activity [Astronomy], six experts in the field will provide a unique and enlightening about whether we have visited beings from other worlds perspective.

An article some might find of interest by red pill junkie at 'The Daily Grail', '"UFOlogy Has No Ontology": Jacques Vallee at the CAIPAN Workshop 2014'. It has some good links and presents some reasonable points for consideration.
