iCommons is proud to announce that registration for this year’s iSummit is now open. The annual Summit will be hosted in Dubrovnik this year, from 15-17 June.The theme of this year’s event is: ‘Opening the Lid: Investigating the Mechanics of Open Communities’. With a focus on isolating what it is that makes successful projects work, this year’s iCommons Summit will equip volunteers, activists and internet companies with the tools to understand what makes the free global network information society tick. Apart from more practical advice by successful practitioners, the Summit will also host presentations by the world’s most important commons theorists (including Lawrence Lessig, Lawrence Liang and Jimmy Wales) on where we’re heading during these formative years.

The goals of iCommons are to build the Summit into a launch-pad for global cooperation around commons projects and to provide an open, creative space for practitioners to learn from best case practices and to showcase new ideas. With iCommons’ strong institutional partnerships, we will continue to nurture these alliances throughout the year, providing the tools and spaces for commoners to build on the friendships and shared experience of the event, and building a united global commons community.

The three-day program will have a mix of formal presentations, roundtable working groups, practical workshops and community-driven program slots that enable participants to gain strategic insights and practical techniques as well as play a critical role in shaping the emerging global commons movement.

From the keynote speakers to the members of the expanding iCommons community showcasing their ideas and inviting participation in key projects, this year’s Summit is proving to be a must-attend event for anyone engaged in the growth and development of the digital commons of the future, and we hope that you will be able to attend.

Contribute to the event by adding your ideas for workshops and birds of a feather sessions to the iCommons wiki. We’ll host regular updates, and breaking news announcements about the Summit at this site, so keep checking back with us!
