Exploratory papers should present original, unpublished ideas and research that explores, advances or reflects on PD’s potential future developments. Exploratory papers benefit from making one, clear contribution. Authors are encouraged to present a focused reflection or a meaningful empirical case study. A focused reflection will be expected to explore or advance existing ideas/concepts or propose new ones at a theoretical level, even coming from nearby disciplines to build an interdisciplinary dialogue. A case study will be expected to present applications of PD that are empirically fascinating even without strong theoretical grounding.

Submissions and Review Process
Exploratory papers go through a double-blind review process (to know more about the review process, look at the guidelines provided for reviewers).
There are 2 deadlines:
The 1st deadline is on December 1, when authors are required to submit their papers through the submission systems (link here). On February 15, authors will be notified: either their paper will be accepted or rejected. Where papers rank equally, we will give preference to those that best address the theme of the conference.
The 2nd and final deadline is March 15, when selected authors will submit their camera ready papers.
