*The DEVELOPING RESEARCH STREAM is research in progress, working papers, basically research at an incomplete stage of development that participants want to present that is focussed on the conference theme. Some may not have the time to produce a competitive paper, but still want to present their information for discussion.
Competitive papers that reviewers decide are not sufficiently well developed may be invited to present in the Developing Research stream.
Abstracts will be included in the proceedings. The presentations will have a discussant who will comment on the information presented. The competitive paper stream will have a time for questions and answers, but the session moderator will not serve as a discussant.
