CONFERENCE DESCRIPTION How are knowledge, information, and other shared intellectual resources governed? Building upon the successful 2012 global thematic IASC conference on knowledge commons, this 2nd conference aims to take stock of the latest developments in the interdisciplinary study of knowledge commons. The conference will seek to better understand how knowledge commons work, where they come from, what contributes to their durability and eectiveness, and what undermines them. This years program will highlight knowledge commons in the elds of medicine and the environment by devoting special paper tracks and policy sessions to those topics. The Conference organizers invite paper submissions in the following areas: HIGHLIGHT TRACKS T1: Medical science and innovation commons T2: Knowledge commons in environmental research, innovation and management!GENERAL TRACKS T3: Scientic and technical digital data and information commons T4: Knowledge commons in the cultural sector T5: Knowledge commons approaches to scientic research T6: Traditional and local communities knowledge T7: Innovation Commons!METHODOLOGICAL TRACK T8: Innovative analytical and empirical approaches2 4. ILLUSTRATIVE SUB-TOPICS HIGHLIGHT TRACKS ! Track 1: Medical science and innovation commons!! Access to clinical trial data for follow-on research Nested and networked medical research consortia (e.g., the Rare Disease Clinical Research Network and associated rare disease research consortia) Open approaches to drug development Platforms for sharing of medical knowledge and innovation between patients Sharing norms and institutions among physicians Commons-based approaches to global health issuesTrack 2: Environmental science and innovation commons! Digital portals for citizen based biodiversity monitoring and taxonomy (e.g. citizen taxonomy, monitoring of bird populations) Citizen engagement and crowdsourcing in environmental management (e.g. of invasive species) Commons approaches to environmental research and innovation (e.g. climate change research, development of environmentally friendly technologies) Managing big environmental data as a commons Open hardware and mobile technology-based systems for data collection by stakeholders3 5. ILLUSTRATIVE SUB-TOPICS GENERAL CONFERENCE TRACKS ! Track 3: Scientic and technical digital data and information commons!! Governance of large-scale public databases (e.g. in the eld of genomics) Institutional repositories of publications and scientic information: collaborative design, nancing, management, and long-term preservation Open access of journal publications, including mechanisms for access to research data and the governance of relevant privacy issues Open data repositories and management in government settingsTrack 4: Knowledge commons in the cultural sector! Public repositories of audio-visual recordings of art, dance, performances (e.g. audio-visual archives of publicly funded initiatives and performances) Commons-based production, curation and sharing of artistic and other creative works (e.g. archives, digital libraries, and peer production and UGC platforms) Heritage collection of works in the cultural sector after copyright exhaustion Peer to peer le sharing4 6. ILLUSTRATIVE SUB-TOPICS GENERAL CONFERENCE TRACKS (CONTD) ! Track 5: Knowledge commons approaches to scientic research!! Crowdsourcing, citizen science and citizen engagement Ex-situ collections (e.g. CGIAR, microbial collections, Smithsonian, human cell tissues) Research consortia, public-private partnerships and other collaborative research initiatives Social norms of scientic and medical communities Synthetic biology commons (e.g. BioBricks, MIT group) Traditional seed exchange networks History of open scienceTrack 6: Traditional and local communities knowledge! Commons governance of traditional artistic, musical, spiritual, and other cultural resources Protecting and sustaining access to traditional medicinal and agricultural knowledge and practices Promoting living and preserving old dialects (e.g. open source repository of texts in Gaelic dialect) Technology and knowledge commons that are complementary to commons governance of natural resources5 7. ILLUSTRATIVE SUB-TOPICS GENERAL CONFERENCE TRACKS (CONTD) ! Track 7: Innovation Commons! Commons-based strategies for technology transfer, distribution and sharing across institutions History of collective knowledge pooling initiatives (e.g. ancient guilds, airplane inventors) Dissemination of technological innovations Open source software, hardware Makerspaces Online systems supporting collective action/collaboration Patent pools, standard-setting organizations, and other commons-based approaches to production of consumer goods and services User innovator communities! METHODOLOGICAL TRACK !Track 8: Innovative analytical and empirical methodological approaches! Frameworks or approaches to large-scale cross-case comparisons or longitudinal analyses Institutional economics and game theoretical models Adaptation of the Institutional Analysis and Development framework for the analysis of knowledge commons Metrics for success in knowledge commons and approaches to measuring outcomes for cross-case comparisons Interdisciplinary and transdisciplinary research methodologies Institutional diagnostic approaches6 8.
