Association for Law, Property & Society 9th Annual Meeting

Conference details

The Association for Law, Property & Society (ALPS) is an organization for those engaged in scholarship on all aspects of property law and society.  Its annual meeting brings together scholars from different disciplines to discuss their work and to foster dialogue among those working in property law, policy, planning, social scientific field studies, modeling, and theory. Prior meetings have averaged approximately 150 participants from across the globe. ALPS will hold its 9th meeting at Maastricht University, The Netherlands on May 31–June 2, 2018.

Call for papers:

Submissions on any subject related to property law and the practices that shape property norms and institutions are welcome. ALPS has a strong commitment to international and interdisciplinary diversity, and paper topics reflecting that commitment are encouraged. 

ALPS accepts both individual paper submissions and proposals for fully formed panels (usually 3 to 5 presenters, sometimes including not only papers but also films or multimedia outputs). Submissions may be of full paper drafts and completed projects, or early works-in-progress.  Submissions should include an abstract of no more than 250 words. The abstract must include: (1) the name of the submitting scholar, (2) the scholar’s institution, and (3) an email contact for the author or authors. If submitting a fully formed panel, please insure that an abstract for each paper is included in the submission and that each abstract clearly identifies the fully formed panel the paper is a part of.

Abstracts may be emailed to alps2018[at]maastrichtuniversity[dot]nl. The deadline for submitting papers and panels is February 28, 2018 but registration for the conference will continue to be available after that date. Authors and panel proposers will be notified of the acceptance of their individual submissions or proposed panel by no later than March 9, 2018.

After reviewing and accepting submissions, ALPS will thematically group accepted papers and panels. Concurrent panels will be held on both days of the conference with each panel session lasting approximately 90 minutes and including both individual presentations and time for questions from the audience.
