Presentations related to East Asian historical demography at IUSSP 2013 Busan

I’m trying to put together a list of sessions that include presentations focused on East Asian historical demography at the IUSSP meetings in Busan, South Korea, August 26 to September 31, 2013.

Below is what I have found so far, copied and pasted from the IUSSP online programme.  If the session is focused on East Asia, I have copied information for the entire session.  In other cases where a paper focused on East Asia appears in a session with a broader theme, I only copied over the information about the East Asia themed session.

I probably have missed many presentations because I was searching on the names of people who I already knew were presenting.  If you know of any other presentations focused on historical demography in East Asia, please email me and I will add.  Please email me a link to the session (see below for examples) so I can copy and paste the information easily.
