Schedule

At this year's conference we will engage the complexities of the world under the theme, "What Will Be Our Future?" The sessions, set in seven different time slots, will be framed by five plenary sessions. The conference welcomes you to present, respond, or engage with scholars; to highlight the conference with your stimulating research, keen insights and professional and collegial collaboration.
