Collection de la Casa de Velázquez (CCV)

CCV is intended for the publication of collective works compiled from meetings organised as part of the Casa de Velàzquez Programme of scientific activities (conferences, congresses, study sessions).

Texts are reworkings of the proceedings of a meeting. They should not exactly reproduce communications. Some coordination and collation of the different contributions is therefore required to meet the collection's standards.
