It is an international centre with chapters in Canada, at Wilfrid Laurier University in Waterloo, Ontario; in Poland, at the University of Warsaw and in Italy, at the University of Siena.

We encourage long-term affiliation with the centre, and we especially encourage the participation of graduate students and recent PhDs.
