We welcome three types of proposals:

Presenters and panel participants may include researchers (e.g. economists, modellers, social scientists, and legal scholars), policy-makers, and representatives of the private sector and civil society.

The submission deadline was Sunday, 15 May 2016. We are sorry, but no submissions will be accepted after that date. Notifications of acceptance will be sent by 31 May.

Themes and topics: Proposals may be submitted under one of the three conference themes, or address topical, region- or context-specific cases that cut across those themes. For example, we could envision sessions on Norway’s debate about the future of oil and gas production; the United States debate over the leasing of federal lands for fossil fuel production; proposed or actual moratoria on new coal mines in China and Australia; and Canadian plans for increased oil sands production, pipelines, and exports.

Limits per person: While there is no limit on the number of submissions, each individual will be permitted to present only one paper.
