Session Summaries

Our Québec hosts graciously arranged for up-and-coming staff from their organizations and university students to attend the 2013 conference as Rapporteurs. Rapporteurs attended each session and listened to the proceedings. After the session, they summarized what was discussed (themes, key points, contentious areas) into a one-page report. You can access the report by clicking on the name of the session below.

Nos hôtes québécois ont mis à contribution des membres de leurs organisations et des étudiants universitaires afin qu’ils participent à la conférence en tant que rapporteurs. Ces rapporteurs assisteront à chacune des séances et écouteront l’ensemble des présentations. Une fois une séance terminée, ils en feront le résumé (thèmes, points clés, sujets controversés, etc.) dans un compte-rendu d’une page. Vous pouvez consulter les comptes-rendus en cliquant sur les titres des séances ci-dessous.
