We are pleased to make the following announcements about the 2015 Canberra Conference on Earth System Governance

Draft program now available!

The draft program for the conference is now available on the conference website. We are very excited about the line-up of keynote speakers, panels and special sessions. However, we are aware that many of you are still finalising your funding arrangements and may not be able to attend. As such, please note that the program is subject to change and should not be relied upon when making travel arrangements. Unfortunately, we cannot guarantee that your panel/session will not change.

Please check the program and let us know of any errors (e.g. misspelled names, incorrect affiliations) or conflicts (e.g. you are speaking on a panel at the same time as an innovative session is being held that you are meant to participate in). We will make every effort to resolve such issues. We cannot respond to other requests (e.g. to present at a specific time/date).

If you are not able to attend the conference or would like to withdraw one of your papers, please contact us ASAP at esg2015@anu.edu.au 

Early-Bird Registration closes 16 October and to ensure inclusion in the program you must register before 16 November:
