Two thesis defenses on scalar inference coming up

Two theses (arguably the first in "Experimental Pragmatics" as construed here) are about to be defended. Napoleon Katsos who worked with Richard Breheny in Cambridge will have his viva in Cambridge on the 21st of November at 1pm at the "RECALL". His thesis title is "Experimental investigations on the effects of structure and context on the generataion of scalar implicatures." One month later, Nausicaa Pouscoulous who worked in both Paris and Lyon (with Dan Sperber and Ira Noveck, respectively), will be defending her thesis, which is also on scalars, in Paris (December 21st). Her exact title is forthcoming.
