If there are any serious issues regarding the timing of your paper please contact the Conference Secretariat as soon as possible. Please note this is not the final version of the programme, and the timing of some sessions or papers may be altered over the next two weeks as more papers are submitted.
If you do not see your paper here it may be because we have only recently received it, or not received it at all. We do have several papers that are not in these tables as they have only recently arrived. We will be working them into the programme over the next few days.

Multiple forms of participation
The conference will be delivered through a range of different activities. These are briefly described below.
We propose a small number of topics to be the subject of special symposia or workshops to allow for focused examination and discussion of emerging issues of interest.
Young researcher sessions
Graduate students, those recently qualified, or just starting out in research careers may benefit from taking part in sessions identified specifically for young researchers. The aim is to encourage attendance by young researchers and students. These will have the following characteristics:
Side event/thematic panels
Opportunities will be provided to sponsoring organisations and other outside bodies to organise and deliver focused policy/practitioner workshops, Thematic panels may also be established to examine a particular issue within a sector, such as forestry or fishing.
Poster sessions will be organised and run at specific times in order to make the sessions more interactive and attractive both to those presenting and their potential audience.
Keynote speakers at plenary sessions
Several plenary sessions with key note speakers will be held during the week.
Panel sessions of presented papers
Papers will be grouped and presented in standard panel sessions with a chairman.
Short paper sessions
Papers will be presented in a more ‘distilled’ form, with more time devoted to questions and discussion.
Round table discussions
Specific issues will be debated by invited speakers in small discussion groups.
Video and other media presentations
A screening room will be provided for video, film, and other forms of presentation.
