Papers and presentations regarding the above areas are of particular interest to the conference. However, these suggested areas of research and writing are not meant to be limitations, and the conference programme is open to all substantive areas of formal and informal inquiry into the rewards and challenges of leadership for women. Investigators may present papers documenting relevant activities, pilot studies, feasibility studies or developmental work. “Structured presentations,” by definition, must convey viewpoints supported by a framework of literature essential to the matter under discussion.
