ISA 2015 program: themes addressed, voices heard

Here is a selection from 100+ panels and RTs invited and/or sponsored by the conference theme (President + program chairs). While it is very important to discuss what one aspect of the program (i.e. the sapphire series of panels) does not offer, it may also be useful to consider what the rest of the program offers–in terms of both themes addressed and voices heard.
