Proposal instructions for the conference (RoS)

The extended abstract should outline new or previously unpublished original work. This may include: empirical study, artistic research, and conceptual/theoretical work.

Submission content

The submission should include a title, keywords, and references. To provide a context for your fellow workshop participants, we encourage you to also briefly describe the project and planned continuation of the work.

Within the extended abstract, or in a short separate reflective text, we welcome you to provide a description on how the work relates to the UN Sustainable Development Goals and issues arising from this.


Maximum 800 words (preferably shorter) excluding references, figures and tables. In all, the material should fit in 1–4 pages standard formatted A4. If you wish to participate with other types of material, please let us know.

Compose and submit your material as a single Word document.   


Proposal submission deadline is Sunday November 13, 2016. Send your contribution to ros.conf@hb.se.

Presentation and publication

Accepted contributions are presented by the authors during the workshop, preferably in English. Prepare for a 10–15 minutes presentation. Definite time allotments will be set in November when the volume of contributions is known. Accepted texts will be made available to all participants prior to the conference, and may be published in DiVA.

Selected contributions will be invited to be developed further and published as full-text articles in an anthology on the topic “Research on Sustainable Development” in the series “Science for the Professions”.
