You can submit proposals for a single paper, a panel-related paper (invited by panel organizers), a panel, or a poster. Please read the specifications below.

Single paper proposals
  • Proposal for an academic paper presentation.
  • When submitting, please indicate the track/theme your abstract relates to.
  • If your abstract will be accepted for presentation by the Conference Organizers, your presentation will be scheduled by the Conference Organizers together with other papers on related topics.
Panel proposals
  • Proposal for a panel of several presentations on a specific theme or topic – although focus will be on academic presentations, presentations by practitioners may be included; in case focus is mainly on practitioners’ presentation, please submit a proposal for a Practitioners’ Lab.
  • Preferably propose a full panel; include name of intended participants in your proposal
  • Make sure to communicate the ID number of your panel proposal to your intended participants. You will find the ID of your proposal in the automated confirmation that will be e-mailed to you after completing your submission.
  • Please inform your intended participants to include the ID of your panel as first keyword with the submission of their panel-related papers.
  • Please note that panel proposals and panel-related papers will both be reviewed; in case some panel-related papers are rejected, the Conference Organizers may decide to add related single presentations to the panel.
Panel-related papers
  • Proposal for a presentation related to a proposed panel of presentations on a specific theme or topic – although focus will be on academic presentations, presentations by practitioners may be included.
  • Please make sure to include the ID of the panel as first keyword when submitting your panel-relate paper. This ID should be provided to you by the organizers of the panel.
  • Please note that panel proposals and panel-related papers will both be reviewed; in case some panel-related papers are rejected, the Conference Organizers may decide to add related single presentations to the panel.
Poster presentation
  • Proposal for a poster presentation at the Conference.
  • Posters will be displayed at a central location during the Conference.
  • Please be aware that hard copies for display should be provided by the presenters themselves; the Conference Organizers will not print the posters for you.
Multi-stakeholder Dialogues
  • ‘Dialogue’ sessions that can take different formats (e.g., roundtable, workshop, living lab, open discussion, etc.).
  • Structured around a particular question, or challenge, facing commons theory, practice, management or governance.
  • Key features of the ‘dialogues’ are the relevance of the challenge / question tackled and its composition: they must be composed of at least two different types of commons-related stakeholder (e.g. citizen, practitioner, private sector, public sector, policy maker, academic researcher, activist).
  • Those proposing ‘dialogue’ sessions will need to develop a coherent description of the proposed sessions, the aims and objectives, and identify the range and types of stakeholders involved.
  • Multi-stakeholder Dialogue proposals will need to include:
    • a brief explanation of the societal relevance of the main topic and the Dialogue format (e.g. roundtable, workshop, discussion, etc.);
    • a list of the participants (at least two different categories of stakeholder – with the ideal being three or more) and their expected contribution
    • a description of how knowledge exchange and/or co-production will be promoted during the session (how are you thinking to engage participants on a co-production of knowledge? how are you planning to synthesize the discussion?
