We have a strong commitment to providing opportunities for conference participants to interact, converse, and learn from each other. Built in to the conference program are a number of sessions and events that are designed specifically to promote interactions among the on-site members of the knowledge community. These range from more formal plenary sessions, through parallel presentations, to informal coffee breaks and optional activities. Some of these, like Talking Circles and Garden Sessions, may be new experiences for participants. Our approach to organizing Parallel Sessions has some unique features, as well. Learn more about these session types under On-site Presentations.
Common Ground Publishing offers a number of opportunities for organizations or groups who might want to offer sponsorship to our conferences and journals. We ask that interested organizations are linked with the themes of the conference and are willing to connect with the conference and journal community. Allow us to help you increase exposure of your organization or group within our community of engaged and enthusiastic academics, undergraduate and graduate students, teachers, practitioners and professionals.
Conference sponsorship packages combine exposure before the event and maximum impact during the conference. For organizations or groups wishing to target a specific day, materials, or social events during the conference, individual sponsorship provides an attractive option. This allows your organization to choose your desired level of involvement and exposure to attendees at the conference. A key reason why attendees come to Common Ground conferences is to establish personal contacts and to network with other delegates and interested parties from around the world – so social events such as the conference dinner, lunches and breaks are very well attended.
