Frequently Asked Questions

I’d like to contact someone from the workshop. How can I get their contact details?

On the participants page, there is a link to (almost) everyone’s website. Folks’ contact details are (almost always) there. If you are having trouble finding a particular person’s contact details this way, reach out and we might be able to connect you.

Who is the audience? 

The audience is largely political scientists and practically-minded philosophers, with some economists, climate scientists, and other interested scholars. We currently expect around 35 presenters and up to 35 non-presenting participants. 

Will the presentations and discussions be freely available on the web? 

No. To enable free and frank discussions, only registered participants will be able to see the works and forum discussions. 

I’m presenting. For how much of the workshop period (June 16-June 30) do I need to be online to respond to questions and comments on my work?  

The only commitment we ask is for you to check the questions and comments at least once during the workshop period and make some response in the forum. If your availability will be limited, you will be able to indicate in your presentation when you might be most likely to respond. 

I’m presenting. How many other presentations should I read? How many should I comment on? 

Ultimately it’s up to you, but we think if you are presenting, it is appropriate to aim to read and comment on at least five other presentations over the two-week period. 

I’ve been selected/invited to present at the workshop. How do I submit my final paper? 

See instructions here

I have a long paper that is hard to condense into 3,500 words. What should I do?

We recommend short papers to allow the interdisciplinary audience the chance to interact with a wide range of papers. One option in this case is to submit the longer paper, but highlight sections that readers short on time can focus on that together would fit under the word limit.

Is there any fee to participate? 

No, participation is free.

What was it like last year? 

A report of last year’s workshop is available here

What will happen to my presentation after the 30th of June?

It’s up to you. You can opt to take your presentation offline. The forums will be closed to new comments but remain available to registered participants for at least 10 months. 

Are there synchronous events?

Yes! See the details here.
