The overall theme of the BRC 2010 Conference is "Borneo: Continuity, Change and Preservation".
Traditional cultures, beliefs, identities, knowledge and so many other aspects intrinsic to Borneo never really disappear. People of the land incorporate contemporary elements into traditional quintessence in continuously dealing with and adapting to often inevitable change. The extent of continuity, change and preservation with regards to any transformation in Borneo usually varies from the subtle and to the obvious.
To accommodate as many academic fields and research areas as possible, the BRC 2010 conference includes a wide range of sub-themes to be addressed during plenary sessions and discussion panels:
*Biodiversity and Ecology;
*Cultural Heritage and Hybridisation;
*Education and Indigenous Communities;
*Ethnicity, Diversity and Identity;
*Gender and Social Transformation;
*Health and Healing;
*History, Anthropology and Archeology;
*Human Resources and Industrial Relations;
*ICT, Media and Communication;
*Marine Resources;
*Migration, Diasporas and Border Issues;
*Property and Land Issues;
*Security Issues;
*Sustainable Development;
