Bays, Boundaries and Borders
This meeting invites advocates, activists, policy makers, scholars and researchers to respond creatively to the 2012 program theme, “Bays, Boundaries, and Borders,” with papers, posters, roundtable discussions, sessions or videos on a broad range of issues, problems or topics including those that arise from the interaction of people with their natural or community environments; those that help us better understand or “push beyond” the current boundaries of our knowledge, methods, practices or theories in helping resolve human problems; and those focused on border control and the crossing or transport of goods, people or ideas across borders.
