Appel à Communication Symplatform: 1st Symposium matching Scholars and Practitioners on Digital Platforms 16-17 Avril 2020, Trinity College Dublin (Ireland)

Symplatform is symposium on digital platforms, that brings scholars from all management discipline and industry leaders to foster discussions and define the past, present and future evolution of the digital platform economy.


The aim of Symplatform is to:

  • Share knowledge and collaboration between scholars in the field from various perspectives in Management Sciences by presenting and discussing papers;
  • Discuss with and involve practitioners, both managers and entrepreneurs, in the conversation, bringing forth their perspectives to guide future research and have a real-world impact.


Bridging the gap between these two sides creates a knowledge sharing platform where traditional papers, presentations, and keynotes speeches are enriched by collaborative workshops that bring scholars and practitioners together.


This first edition will take place at Trinity College Dublin (Dublin – Ireland) on April 16th nd 17th 2020.

During the conference participants will be selected to submit a full paper to the Journal of Business Ecosystems.
