Call for papers

We are delighted to send you this call for papers, inviting you to consider to be a presenter at the 1st  edition of the Sustainability in Project Management conference in Croatia, whether you’re a practitioner telling about your good practices, an expert sharing ideas & solutions on better practices or an academic sharing insights in future next practices.

Our Program Committee will organize an exciting collection of top-level sessions and considers you to be an inspiring presenter, a national or international thought leader or expert in one of the focus areas of the conference. Inspiring and entertaining stories connected to our central theme: “Sustainability leadership: inspiring action towards a better world”

Practitioners/consultants addressing specific cases/approaches co-presenting with their clients/customers (in order to confirm the effectiveness of the practitioners/consultants approach/methodology) are preferred over those without their clients/customers being present.

The following types of papers can be presented:

Academic Papers: An Academic Paper is devoted to topics and questions that are mainly of interest to the academic community and related to specific research issues in the field of project management or related research areas, with the intention to disseminate learning from research;

Practitioner Papers: A Practitioner paper addresses specific issues, problems and/or solutions and/or practical experiences within the project, program and/or project portfolio environment and contributes to the learning of practitioners, with the intention to disseminate learning from practical experience. It is our intention to have all papers published either through an academic journal and/or by means of a special SiPM GPM publication.



There are several major topics that cover the 1st SiPM 2019 conference:

  • management of sustainable development,

  • improving competencies for managing sustainable development projects,
