Schedule

Week at a Glance

We continue to fine tune the conference schedule. With almost 200 speakers the 7ICEF’s 18 thematic sessions feature session leads presenting on pre-circulated review articles, discussants whose presentations will draw on their own research, expertise, and conservation  practices to complement, expand, reframe fundamental or centering conversations, as well as fresh research papers delivered by participants in each of the sessions. Please download our PROGRAM and ABSTRACT documents (final versions will be available at registration).
